Welcome to Matlock, Tamarah!

Join us in welcoming our new Receptionist, Tamarah Lawrence! At Matlock, it is customary for our newcomers to answer a few questions to help us get to know them better. Here’s what she had to say: TLA

  1. Who’s your favorite cartoon character?

My favorite cartoon character is Scooby-Doo! I loved watching everything Scooby-Doo when I was a kid and I guess that’s where my love of mystery and dogs stemmed from.

  1. Do you have any secret or strange talents?

Secret or strange talents…ummm I can put my legs behind my head. I used to do it all the time when I was younger, now, not so much … might pull something I need.

  1. If you could pick anyone in the world to be a mentor to you, who would it be?

Karen Civil! I recently discovered her on Instagram. I could use a few pointers from her.

  1. Biggest pet peeve?

I have plenty but I’ll say my biggest pet peeve is people who are always on their phone. I have a best friend who I’ll be talking to and I literally have to wait for her response because she’s busy scrolling down Instagram. I need a new best friend, huh?

  1. What is your favorite type of cuisine?

I love Soul food and Jamaican food! My dad cooks the best Jamaican food, I love when he makes me fried plantains those are my favorite, yum!

  1. Would you prefer to live by ocean, in the mountains, in the city, or in the dessert?

I would prefer to live in the mountains and enjoy all that nature has to offer. I used to love camping when I was younger, though we had an RV. But my favorite place to camp was Hammonasset Beach so maybe I would be better off near the ocean. Nah. I’m a mountain girl.

  1. If you could go back in time to any era, which would it be?

It would be the '60s because I love the music from the Motown era.

  1. What is your favorite book?

"The Other Daughter" by Lisa Gardner was the first book I read by her and I fell in love. I finished the book in two days. Needless to say I enjoy books that keep me on the edge of my seat, that I can’t stop reading.

  1. What is your favorite quote?

“She believed she could, so she did.”
