Tam is the Clinic Manager at Aligned Modern Health – Andersonville, and is so excited to be a part of the team. She graduated from Illinois State University with a Bachelor of Science in Theatre History and Political Science and then went on to begin a career in Arts Administration, where she spent most of her time in the Casting Department at Steppenwolf Theatre Company. She is a passionate indoor cyclist, vegan, and group fitness instructor so she’s thrilled to make the transition to the Health & Wellness industry. When not in Clinic, you can find Tam riding her Peloton, attempting to learn to REALLY cook, or watching Gilmore Girls for the 75895th time.
Q&A WITH TAM
What are you most passionate about professionally? Personally?
Both personally and professionally I’m most passionate about helping people find confidence through health. It’s easy to get down on yourself if you’re overweight or have anxiety – helping those people feel good about themselves again is the most gratifying experience.
What three traits define you?
Direct, funny, attentive
What would you do even if you didn’t get paid to do it?
Be a Peloton instructor 🙂
What are you surprisingly good at?
Twirling a baton. I have pretty much zero coordination in every other department, but for some reason…I twirl a mean baton.
What’s one thing you couldn’t live without?
What do you do for fun in your spare time? What are your hobbies?
As I’ve mentioned at least twice, I’m in real deep in the Peloton tribe. Indoor cycling is my primary form of exercise and I’m completely obsessed with this bike and community that Peloton boasts. I’m also a huge Minnesota Vikings fan so every Sunday in the fall you can find me at Redmond’s (Chicago Vikings bar, for those curious) or parked on my couch screaming at the television.
Share something unique that most people don’t know about you.
I’m deeply afraid of butterflies. Everyone knows this. I just thought you should too.
