Tami Christensen 

Tami Christensen lives in Gig Harbor, Washington. She was educated as an accountant, but after a decade of working as a CPA in corporate America, she now finds the joy in caring for her four children.  While running marathons is her passion, she considers motherhood the best cross-training program.  Nothing heals the body like housework and nothing heals the heart like sticky kisses, warm snuggles, and tight hugs from her kids. Tami is dreaming bigger and working harder for the next big goal.  After all, the journey has just begun...


"Only those who will risk going too far can possibly find out how far one can go."

-T.S. Eliot
