Tamera is one of our victim advocates. She conducts intake interviews and helps us decide how to best serve you. Tamera may even assist you at the hospital and be there for you during the SART exam or the detective’s interview. She knows this can be a very stressful time, and helps survivors understand the process of the civil and criminal case. Her goal is to help the brave survivors that come forward to speak out against this pervasive and predatory behavior so that someday ride-sharing companies will take the steps they need to keep riders safe from sexual assault.
She also serves as a victim advocate for the Army, coordinating professional and support services to victims/survivors of sexual harassment and assault. She conducts professional level and administrative educational and interactive training workshops/seminars to staff, community agencies and unit leaders.
Tamera is retired from the United States Coast Guard. Following her “retirement”, her civilian career has included assignment as a Legal Assistance Paralegal in Miami, Florida; a Special Needs Coordinator in Miami, Florida; the Coast Guard Pacific Area Regional Ombudsman Coordinator in Alameda, California; and a Special Needs Coordinator, School Liaison Officer, and Ombudsman Coordinator in Honolulu, Hawaii.
Her education includes a BA from Thomas Edison State College, Paralegal Certification from Old Dominion University, and a Master’s Degree in Behavioral Health Psychology from Northcentral University. Ms. Streeter completed 7 weeks of training from the Sexual Harassment/Assault Response Program Academy at Fort Leavenworth, KS and the 65-hour California State Certification for trauma counseling. She is credentialed through the National Organization of Victim Advocates (NOVA) and in trauma informed yoga. Tamera volunteers as a sexual assault victim advocate for Tri-Valley Haven in Livermore, CA. She has a Therapy dog named Walter, who loves to be hugged and even hugs back!
