Tamara began working for Whole Foods Market more than 25 years ago and has been supporting its mission to nourish people and the planet ever since. What began as a cashier job grew to become an executive assistant position on the Quality Standards team and eventually led to supporting the Quality Assurance team. Tamara has supported a wide range of defining Whole Foods Market initiatives including those focused on healthy eating, health and wellness education for Team Members, and industry-leading standards. In addition, she partnered with Company’s foundations to support local and global communities.

Her soup to nuts experience at Whole Foods Market served as a seamless pathway to begin supporting Whole Kids Foundation in 2019. Today, in her Team Support role, Tamara taps into her wealth of knowledge and provides integral footing for the Foundation’s day-to-day operations.

As a parent, Tamara witnesses the impact that fresh, healthy food can have on children and is grateful to be a part of a movement dedicated to improving children’s nutrition and wellness.
