Tamara's father is a Clinical Psychologist who obtained his qualifications in New Zealand as part of a student exchange from Connecticut. While he was there, he met Tamara's mother Eileen who was a local at Christchurch and an expert seamstress.
They were married after 6 weeks and Henry opened up an office in Christchurch itself. 10 years later, they had 5 children including Tamara. She grew up in the hills of Christchurch until at the age of 5 when Henry was offered a role at a private firm in Santa Cruz, California.
From there, Eileen opened up a store and her children, including their next two youngest born in the US, went to school locally. They still reside there to this day (Tamara's parents) overlooking the Monterey Bay.

At the age of 17 Tamara looked destined to follow her mother into a family owned business called 'Spins and Threads'. But her intelligence played a role in guiding her to University.
She undertook a generalist degree first year but then decided to major in Earth Science after becoming interested in minerals and the transformation of continents. In her third year of this course, she met a graduate student Nicholas Osbourne who become closely acquainted with the plucky red head. He convinced her to continue her studies as he completed his doctorate in Bioengineering. Subsequently, she completed a masters by course work in her favoured subject of Geophysics.
Not long after graduating this, Tamara approached several NGO's to find a position that would fulfill her sense of duty and calling but found none to be adequate to her relationship with Nicholas. In 2004 he moved to take up a position at the University of Colorado which she followed him to.
Once there, Tamara became intrigued by the Air Force and the option of becoming a Weather Officer. She entered basic training (much to Nicholas' anxiety) at the age of 23 and passed through easily. At the age of 24 she was shipped to Afghanistan and there served a tour for the AF in tactical ops and intelligence, mainly working in weather operations. While there, she worked with a variety of highly skilled officers who trained her in intelligence gathering and basic combat skills. She soon excelled as an intel officer and returned home with the mind to transfer to intelligence.
Upon returning home to Nicholas her now 4 year partner however, she was approached by the SG program and has since transferred here.
