White House Honors Buffalo Woman: Tamara E. Brown

President Obama’s top science advisers honored Buffalonian Tamara Brown as a “Champion of Change” who, in her own small way, is building a better America.

Brown won the honor for establishing “Tech Savvy,” an annual daylong conference at U.B. to inspire middle-school girls to think about careers in the fields of science, technology, engineering and math — what techies call the “STEM” fields.

“It was totally a surprise; I didn’t even know I was being considered for this award,” said Brown, who at first thought the calls and emails about the award were part of a 40th birthday prank pulled off by her friends.

Tamara earned her bachelor’s degree from Vanderbilt University, double majoring in chemical engineering and biomedical engineering. She holds a master’s degree in chemical engineering from the State University of New York at Buffalo and is completing a Master’s degree in Business Administration. She is currently working to expand Tech Savvy to other regions of the country, including her home state of Mississippi.
