Tam has been fortunate enough to have found her true passion in Art and Design. “It’s interesting how things work out as I thought I was going to become a fashion designer after I graduated high school,” Tam said. However, Tam ended up starting her own restaurant instead, but only after eight years of managing two successful Asian restaurants in California, Tam got out of the restaurant business and went back to school. She obtained her bachelor’s degree in interior design from the Art Institute of Fort Lauderdale, Florida, as was destined for her career’s path. Since then, she has been “having fun every day” doing what she loves, but more importantly, finding creative ways to make her clients’ vision a reality is very rewarding for her.
Tam enjoys volunteering as a way of giving back to the community; she has volunteered for the following organizations: United States Green Building Council (USGBC), AIA Colorado Chapter, Habitat for Humanity of Albuquerque, Citizen School (an after-school apprentice program teaching Architecture 101 to low-income children), Bridging Hope, and ISP Ignatian Spirituality Project (a spiritual retreat facilitator for the homeless in Denver).
