Tamara McKee joined the Day of Hope Presenter Team after several years as a volunteer committee member. Truly inspired in 2010 to make a difference in her community, the Day of Hope and Leadership and personal events compelled her to co-found a grassroots charitable organization called Stilettos for the Cure. Since 2011, the organization has raised $50,000 with the support of the community and a dedicated team of volunteers. She did this while raising two children on her own, and maintaining her roles as managing editor of three regional publications. Having graduated from the University of Toronto with a degree in political science and philosophy, and over 20 years in media, her passion is helping others to find their voice and speak their personal truth.
Although change is consistent in life, Tamara encourages others to seek first to understand, let go of perfectionist expectations, and define themselves. The Hope Team was pleased to include Tamara as a workshop presenter at the Day of Hope & Leadership in 2013.
