Tamara Harvey

“My mission in life is not merely to survive, but to thrive; and to do so with some passion, some compassion, some humor, and some style.”- Maya Angelou

Tamara comes to CANA with a unique background that includes three years of teaching experience in various settings such as Texas and China. During that period, Tamara gained unique perspectives and honed her analytics skills. In particular, she focused on creating visualizations given tracked data. Tamara learned she truly enjoyed the aspect of tracking and creating data and wanted to further explore that in her studies and career. This, partnered with her undergraduate experience with a vast variety of different data programs, and her ‘green thumb’ abilities in mathematical and statistical problem solving, have enabled Tamara to pursue her educational and professional goals.

Tamara is currently nearing completion of her Masters of Science in Applied Mathematics, with a certification in Data Science, at California University of Pennsylvania. She will participate in the CANA Futures Program throughout the summer. Welcome, Tamara!
