Tell us about yourself!
Hi! My name is Tamara Peters (she/her), BSN, RN, and I am the Lead RN at The Emily Program’s Seattle Residential site. I have worked with the Seattle Residential team as a nurse for over four years, and I hope to remain here for many years to come.
Describe the career path that led you to The Emily Program.
I have been a nurse for ten years. I started my nursing career as an LPN in 2012 and then earned my ADN in 2014. During the pandemic, I returned to university and earned my BSN in 2021. I love being a nurse. It has allowed me to help others and meet many wonderful patients and clients over the years. I have worked in various specialty settings, including adolescent behavioral health, medical-surgical, oncology, and at present, eating disorder treatment.
