In the woods or a creek bed looking for fossils is where you can usually find Tamara York, if you are lucky and can keep up. She grew up exploring the woods near her grandparent’s farm outside Connersville, Indiana.
Her passion for the outdoors and “goofing off” brought her to Purdue University, where she graduated with a B.S. in Wildlife Management. She and her husband have climbed Mt. Katahdin in Baxter State Park, Maine, and enjoy hiking with their daughters in state parks, wildlife areas, and forests in Ohio, Kentucky, and Indiana.
Tamara is a trained and seasoned naturalist with more than 17 years of field experience and has worked with Indiana and Ohio Departments of Natural Resources before starting her business, LandShark Communications, which provides marketing and public relations expertise for business in the outdoor recreation industry.
