Let me introduce myself! I'm Tamra Nashman and I'm a lady who's worn a lot of different pairs of shoes in my life. I was raised in the little town of Herrin, Illinois. My parents were wonderful, loving people who taught me the importance of integrity, tenacity, and faith.
When I was of age, I moved to St. Louis, Missouri where I studied education and music. I received a Bachelors and Master's degree at Webster University in St. Louis and went on to teach at the University level.

I married my husband after meeting at a music seminar in Estes Park Colorado and my experiences in that marriage equipped me to help others to effectively deal with their relationship challenges and trauma

I've lost a child in the second trimester of my pregnancy and know the pain associated with this kind of loss. My parents both passed away recently- within 11 months of each other and I've learned a great deal about the pathway through grief. It's very satisfying for me to teach people how to walk through their devastation to a place of peace.

Having survived a horrific airplane crash- the worst in 500 according the FAA- I know what it means to experience profound trauma and I understand the process in the road to recovery from those types of experiences. My life is dedicated to helping people find hope in overwhelming circumstances and to see the possibilities rather than the misfortune.

All of my life experiences and my education serve me well as I speak to corporations, colleges and universities across the country, helping people work through their life issues and to become the individuals they desire to be.
 The concept for my book 'Shoes For The Spirit,' was birthed through the many complications I've walked through in my life. I've found an excellent path to help me, and many others, come to a place of wealth and wholeness and these secrets are shared in my book. What makes my book 'Shoes For The Spirit,' unique from other available books on the market is my first-hand experience with human trauma, suffering and need. I understand the struggles common to humanity and can honestly say I've found the road to recovery. I'm a 'Go-To Relationship Expert', who truly empathizes with others struggles because I've stepped into their shoes.
 I've been an inspirational and motivational speaker for the past twenty years and have also been a counselor and life-coach to many. My greatest joy is to help people find the right shoes for their personal journey and to develop both their gifts and talents for their personal betterment.
