Margaret Meyer

Voice of Reason, Founding Member

Clown, caretaker and all-around cool cat. (Or at least she thinks so!) Margaret is passionate about people and what makes them tick. She is a little bit Buddhist with a whole lot of truth-teller and a smidgen of realist. Come to her with problems and leave with possibility... These are a few of her favorite TENDS: her man, her pup, her family, and her pals from work.

Sue Whitcomb

Chief Empowerment Officer

A believer in the untapped potential of fierce female power, Sue tends toward intensity. She loves hearing the stories that women tell, and then celebrating and helping to channel the strength and resiliency they come to recognize in themselves. She’s an accidentally-retired communications consultant, does a lot of needlepoint, and follows politics way too closely to be allowed in polite company.

Tammy is an observer, go-getter, and a "collector" of many trades. She enjoys listening, learning and helping others. A bit quiet and shy at first, but when she gets to know you, she will be your warrior defender. Photography, travel, animal-loving and walking for a cause are her TEND faves.
