About Me

After serving in the United States Air Force, Tamala received her nursing degree. She has worked in many areas of nursing including operation room, emergency room, inpatient acute care, long term care, and obstetrics. Since 2013 she has been working at Avera Granite Falls Health Center as a Registered Nurse in the hospital and operating room.

While Tamala will be practicing a full spectrum of Family Medicine, her area of passion is adolescent health. When asked what she enjoys about this population she states, “With adolescents, you have an opportunity to make a positive difference in their life and impact their health choices.”

In her spare time, she enjoys riding motorcycle, reading, and spending time at the lake with her husband and three children.
