Tamara’s commitment to improving proactive wellbeing on a global scale has led to her involvement with world leaders in contextual wellbeing measurement, positive psychology and positive education. She opened the first international office of the Institute of Positive Education from Geelong Grammar School, and in 2019 she was appointed the inaugural Director of The Center for Positive Education. She has coupled positive psychology interventions with days of the week to give structure and support to wellbeing in her book The happiness reset- What to do when nothing makes you happy.
Tamara has a passion for mindfulness, the science of habit formation and disrupting thought patterns to promote growth. She has been a staff writer and happiness expert for Deepak Chopra’s Chopra Center for many years.
When Tamara is not speaking, writing or learning she can be found fueling her zest by throwing epic parties, spending time with her husband and four children and planning travel. Her deep belief is that happiness happens by choice, not chance.
