Her unique gift and ability as a speaker is one of humble beginnings.

She is a National Spokesperson and volunteer Ambassador for the American Heart Association. She currently serves as the American Heart Association’s Chair of the Legislative Policy Committee. Obesity and uncontrolled hypertension were factors in Tamika’s strokes and her focus is educating heart healthiness to women’s and children’s organizations using her Fat Girl 2 Glam Girl™ and Blood Pressure Buster™ programs. The self proclaimed once “fat girl” has lost more than 80lbs and inspires others to make lifestyle changes to get in shape through healthy nutrition choices and exercise.
During the pandemic, Tamika founded the non profit organization, G.L.A.M. Giving Life and Motivation, Inc. to bring awareness and reduce the numbers of stroke and heart disease in the African American community.
