In 1999 Tami obtained her Masterís degree in education. It was during her time as a graduate student that she was hospitalized for anxiety disorder. She was able to overcome and taught successfully for ten years. Because of what she had been through as a new teacher, she developed a new-teacher mentoring program for her school. This program is now part of every school in that district. In 2005 Tami left teaching to write her book Life Without the Monsters to help women dealing with worry, fear, stress, and anxiety.
