Born in Iowa, raised in Minnesota, Tami Hoag left the frigid north for warmer climes in 1998. “I used to keep a cartoon pinned to the bulletin board in my office,” says Hoag. “It depicted two polar bears sitting in the snow. One polar bear said to the other polar bear, ‘I don’t care what they say. I’m cold.’ I was always that bear: cold from October to June.”
An avid competitive equestrian in the Olympic discipline of dressage, Tami divides her time between Los Angeles and Palm Beach County, Florida where she competes her horses on the prestigious winter circuit.
