Dr. Tami West cannot diagnose or treat your skin rash. She's not that kind of doctor. She can't refill your thyroid medicine or perform your colonoscopy - not that kind of doctor either!
What kind of doctor is she? The kind who became a PhD solely to help others live happier, more fulfilled lives.
Tami's experiences working in hospitals, physician's offices, research labs, public schools, corporate sales, and the school nutrition industry provide her insights that she uses to help others improve their personal and professional lives. Her undergraduate degrees in science and education, as well as her doctoral research in human development, uniquely equip her to teach audiences new information - not the same old stuff.
Her passion stems from her battle with anxiety disorder that initiated her dedication to helping others. Her clients come from all walks of life. Danbury Federal Prison inmates (the setting of the Netflix Emmy-winning series Orange is the New Black, as well as the prison home for Martha Stewart and Real Housewife Teresa Garduci) found Tami to be genuine and real. Social Security Administration senior management called her a true professional and fantastic at what she does!
Dr. West's publications include The Stress Club: Stop participating, take your power back, and start living your own life, Life Without the Monsters, and A Woman's Guide to Personal Achievement and Professional Success.
She has spoken for groups in 48 states across the US, the United Kingdom, Australia, and New Zealand. When she's not speaking or writing, you might find her with her husband at the beach, reading historical fiction, at Disneyland, or watching Big Bang Theory.
Tami is always real, completely transparent, totally sincere, and consistently surprising. She will make you laugh, cry, and shine a refreshingly new light on life's challenges.
The Stress Club: How to cancel your membership forever!
The American Institute of Stress has reported that America is “on the verge of a stress-induced public health crisis.” Stress-management advice, training, and products are abundant, yet statistics continue to worsen. There’s a reason why stress-management techniques aren't working: It’s risky not to be stressed because you’ll be kicked out of the club! The Stress Club opens eyes to these pressures and teaches you how to disconnect from stress forever. This session, based upon Tami’s research, is guaranteed to make you laugh AND forever change the way you think about stress!
Does this sound familiar? It makes me so mad when… My boss micromanages me! My employees are so negative! My co-workers don’t pull their weight! I am given 5 projects at once from my 3 bosses!

In this eye-opening presentation, Tami will show you how to identify and overcome 4 emotional traps that may be keeping you from excelling at work.

Stop Picking Your Nose!
Communicating well with aging patients doesn’t usually just happen. It takes self-awareness, compassion, choices, and ultimately acceptance that expectations might have to change daily. Sometimes you’ll do great: respond with compassion to a nasty comment, answer the same question 1,000 times with no irritation, and give instructions that are usually directed to toddlers. Some days won’t go so well. In this session, Tami shares the extraordinary story of her mother’s dementia. You’ll laugh. You’ll cry. In the end, you will walk away with 4 powerful lessons that will encourage you to take care of both patients and self each and every day!
