Tamara Palmer is born and raised right here in Columbia, SC.  She began her professional career in phlebotomy within a hospital setting, interacting every day with physicians and clinical staff.  

Tamara moved on to work for the Estee Lauder Company for eight years, where she discovered her passion for the professional beauty industry.  While with Estee Lauder, she perfected her makeup artistry skills and was promoted multiple times, affording her the opportunity to learn how to manage and coach a team of exceptional employees.  

Tamara transitioned to manager of Pout, an exclusive cosmetic boutique in the heart of Five Points.  During her tenure at Pout, the business grew at such speed that they moved to a larger space to accommodate the explosive sales growth.

Tamara made the decision to attend esthetics school in 2008 and is a proud graduate of Esthetics International.  She was quickly hired by Palmetto Dermatology and enjoyed four years working in a medical esthetics capacity.  She continued her journey in esthetics and moved to a medical spa setting where she gained significant training and experience in the use of laser modalities.
