Long Media Bio

Tami Imlay is the owner and managing director of Tami Marie Coaching and Host of Her Restored Spirit Podcast. She is a Restoration and Confidence Coach for Broken-Spirited Women. Tami started her Life Coaching and Enneagram Coaching business in January 2020.  The path to Life Coaching was not a direct one, but as she looked at her life circumstances, decisions, and paths it all became clear. Tami is an Air Force Veteran and worked as a Communications Officer and Project Manager. While in the Air Force she earned her MBA.  She got out of the Air Force to support her husband and family as he continued his Air Force career as an F-15E Fighter Pilot. After he lost his life in 2012 while deployed, Tami had some difficult choices to make. Finding herself heartbroken and yet determined that there is purpose in all pain, she earned a Masters in Science for Marriage, Family, and Child Therapy and became a Marriage and Family Therapist. She worked for the Vacaville Police Department as a Middle and High School Therapist supporting the students and their families. She also worked for Agape Counseling Center with adults and children. As she worked as a therapist, Tami knew she was close to her calling but not quite there. She could see that healing and therapy are critical, but she found her passion in coaching. Helping people overcome their circumstances, see opportunities within their stories, and find hope in the future after they have suffered life-gripping and life-altering circumstances became her calling.

 

Using the Enneagram to help people identify their fears, Tami took “knowledge is power” to another level as she guides people to make the choice changes in their life that allows for transformation, restoration, confidence, and life changes enabling individuals to step boldly into their future. Blending her knowledge and experience as a therapist, project management and leadership in the Air Force, and her passion for changing the future, she has stepped into her God-given purpose as a Restoration and Confidence Coach.  She is the creator of Her Restored Spirit Pathway. A proven framework to move your spirit from broken to beautiful. Tami believes that every person has a purpose, calling, and mission, and when you experience trials and hardships, they don’t have to stay the center of your life. Your life does not have to be defined by the things you go through, but really what defines you is what you grow through. 

 

Tami is a sole-parent to two amazing kids (who are not so little anymore at 11 and 13), they are her inspiration and her WHY.  Raising grieving children is not easy- especially when you are grieving yourself. The lessons she has learned on the journey are forever impacting her lfe and those around her. Tami and her kids currently live in Tulsa, OK.  They love to travel, play sports, and experience new adventures.  She wants her kids to know that no matter what happens, joy is present. No matter what life throws at you, God will never leave you or forsake you and He uses everything for good.
