Tamara Bissell knows for certain that laughter heals.
She realized at her lowest moment that she was still standing. Still functioning (mostly), still providing, and still strong. And what a big, fat, ugly joke this particular part of her life had been. Unwanted, undeserved, and DONE. It didn’t have to be the focus anymore. Even the darkest bits became humorous because they were so twisted and wrong. And they did not define the future.
Tamara now runs her business from the Oregon Coast with her husband, Ace. She illustrates and prints, he does the heavy lifting. They both laugh a lot.
