Tameira Thomas was born and raised in the Porterville area. During her childhood, her mother had friends who were Deaf and hard of hearing who started teaching her to sign as a toddler. She never forgot what she had learned and always had a burning desire to learn more.

From the time Tameira was a little girl, she has had a passion for helping people. So it came as no surprise that she worked in the medical field for close to 15 years.

She had a patient once who was hard of hearing and could use what she remembered from her childhood and communicated with her patient. This lit a fire in her heart develop her sign language skills. Fox is blessed to have Tameira on their team as a Dispatcher.
