Tamara Caliendo
Senior Marketing Assistant

Tamara grew up on a horse farm in Michigan and while a junior in high school, moved with her family to Evansville.  After graduating from the University of Southern Indiana, she has focused much of her career in marketing, public relations, and sales.  

Passionate about our military personnel, their families, and veterans, Tamara became an active member in Rolling Thunder® Indiana Chapter 6 when her only child, Nick, served as a United States Marine. She also established Marine Moms of Evansville as a way for families of local Marines to connect, support each other, and share information.

Tamara has collected rocks, minerals, and rough gems for over 25 years and enjoys recreational target shooting.  Most of all, she loves spending time with her rescued English Bulldog, Sherman the Tank, and volunteers with him for “Reading with Sherman” at Ark Crisis Child Care Center, where Tamara serves on the Board of Directors.
