Tammah Watts

Tammah Watts (she/her/hers) is a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist (LMFT), Certified Kripalu Mindful Outdoor Guide, CA naturalist, birder, and advocate for the equitable accessibility of nature, health, and mental health for all. She has served communities for over 35 years in managerial, clinical, and consulting roles for private, non-profit, college, and public sectors. She brings that same passion to conservation and birding by serving on the Audubon CA Advisory Board of Directors as the Southern California Audubon Chapter Council Representative, the DISES Advisory Board, Cornell Lab of Ornithology’s Project Feeder Watch

KEEP LOOKING UP: Your Guide to the Powerful Healing of Birdwatching, with Hay House, is her first book–a narrative memoir and guidebook with contemplative exercises– that chronicles her journey towards healing by meaningfully connecting with birds.

Tammah is inspired by the abundance of bird species that we are fortunate to have living among us throughout the county and believes they serve as beacons of hope. She lives in North County with her husband, Harrison, and their little dog, Sophie Cat, all the while trying to combat empty nesters syndrome by visiting (and birding) with their children and grandchildren whenever possible.
