More about Tamara L Riess

Tamara (Tammie) became a nurse because she wanted to help people. “I loved nursing because when people were in crisis I felt like I could do something to help them navigate through that tough time in life” she says. After 25 years as a critical care nurse she decided that she wanted to do more to help keep people out of the Intensive care unit altogether. “I saw people suffering from the complications of illnesses like uncontrolled diabetes and heart disease, and knew that with earlier treatment and better control of their conditions we could keep patients from needing the ICU at all. Watching all that they and their families went through in an ICU stay made me want to help spare as many people as possible from that kind of experience.” Tammie returned to school to complete her masters of nursing and Nurse Practitioner degrees from Andrews University in 1999. As she started working in the outpatient setting she became aware of how widespread diabetes was and went back to get her Certification in Diabetic Education. “I realized many people are suffering from poor health because they don’t know how much they can do to get well. I love working with patients to educate them on their condition and help turn frightening diagnosis into manageable conditions.” Tammie feels that helping her patients gain control over their health is one of the best parts of her job. “It is just a wonderful feeling to see the glow on someone’s face when they come in for a visit and have had success with their health goals and are beginning to see that they can do things for their health that seemed overwhelming before.” Tammie, who is married with 2 grown children, is active in her church and community. In her spare time she loves taking walks, cross stitch, reading, and working with Feed America.
