Tamara Austin

Tamara Austin, M.S.W., L.S.W.

Director, Womxn's Hub

I am a Philadelphia native who loves to be a catalyst for change. Being the middle child, I learned early the gift of good mediation. My favorite question to ask students is “What are you prepared to do?”  I think often people want to give you advice but I want to challenge students to think about what feeds them and how they can move in their personal direction towards being their best self. I completed my undergraduate degree in Education at Temple University in Philadelphia. I then went on to get my Master’s degree in Social Work from the University of Pennsylvania. I completed Post Master’s Certifications in Forensic Social Work and Adolescent behavior at New York University. I keep current with continuing education on topics that include but are not limited to; alcohol and drug awareness, sexual identity, sexual assault and violence, feminist thought and power dynamics, gender equality, parenting skills and intersectionality. My favorite relaxation activity is baking for friends and family. I also enjoy biking and skydiving. I can often be found enjoying a cup of tea. My personal mantra is “life is short, eat dessert first."  I am always ready to assist and be a resource to anyone who wants to access the Hub and me. Take a minute, drop by have a piece of chocolate or a cup of tea. 

We are here. See you soon!
