Tamra Roberts grew up in the Napa Valley region of California.Friends can see the rural gentleness in her yet, although she’s lived in New York for over 25 years.
Tamra and Joe met while both were working at Paine Weber’s in the 80’s.They have been married for over twenty five years. They have one daughter, Kathryn, who is 22 and a graduate of Georgetown University. She works behind the scenes with her mother, helping out with the social media and visiting schools and senior citizen centers with her mother.
Tamra once studied to become an Episcopal priest, in 2004. She studied at Manhattan’s General Theological Seminary. She says that her faith has always been important to her.She has put the dream on hold, although last year she obtained a master’s degree in theology.
While Rudy Giuliani was mayor, Tamra worked a fundraiser. Her husband was deputy mayor to Giuliani. A few days ago the couple celebrated their silver wedding anniversary. When asked how she wanted to mark the occasion she responded that she wanted to serve dinner at the Bowery Mission for Women. And so they did!
Tamra, 52, is always present at Joe’s strategy meetings and has a knack for getting people to do what she needs them to do.
One other skill she has that we haven’t mentioned is that she’s a great home cook. No take out for this family. Tamra has a shelf of books devoted to recipes. She can get a good meal on t he table in about 35 minutes.
Tamra does not like the spotlight on her, but there’s no denying she’s a talented and loving wife and mother
