She's a group fitness instructor licensed through AFAA and a certified personal trainer through NCEP. She holds an ISSA Fitness Nutrition Specialist certification as well.

Relationship Help

Tamsen's degree in Psychology and graduate studies in Clinical Counseling came in handy when writing the book Meeting Your Match Online: The Complete Guide to Internet Dating and Dating Services. Her fifth full-length book is a guide to flourishing in a long-distance relationship, which is a topic she knows plenty about; her husband was active duty military and frequently deployed.

Her books can be found on Amazon.com as well as other major book retailers.
