Carolyn Tamler is always looking for good business stories

by Carolyn Tamler 4th January 2021


 

For most of her professional life, Carolyn Tamler had a private consulting business focused on marketing research and public involvement. Her business career began in the Los Angeles Area, after she graduated from UCLA. She was a marketing research professional for the Los Angeles Times for her first two years out of college. She moved to Seattle in the 1960’s and her resume from the Los Angeles Times got her a job as the Marketing Research Manager for the Seattle Post Intelligencer. This was in the days before marketing research was common.

 

She lived in Seattle for years before moving to Bellevue. She worked for some local business firms in the early 1970’s before she created her own consulting firm doing marketing research and public involvement. Most of her clients were marketing and business firms, mainly doing work for cities and counties in the Puget Sound Area. She worked as a sub-consultant on several different projects and did marketing research surveys directly for some public agencies.

 

Before she moved to Whidbey Island, she worked out of her home in Bellevue

 

When she moved to Whidbey 15 years ago, she continued to do consulting with some of her business contacts in the Puget Sound Area. Then, she was asked to do some writing projects on the island. Although she has been somewhat retired for several years, she would be the first to say that she is not the retiring type. Through some serendipity, she began to evolve as a writer.

 

Carolyn is now recognized on the island as the creator of the “Business Spotlight,” a weekly business feature on the on-line publication, Whidbey Local.

 

Each Monday, a new story is published.

 

Carolyn is always looking for new stories, so if you are interested in having her do a story about your Whidbey business, send her an email at carolyntamler@whidbey.net.

The Orchard Kitchen, which opened this past July, is the culmination of a vision that owners Vincent and Tyla Nattress created years ago when they were living in Napa Valley, California. They made a “Vision Board” that was a picture of how they wanted to live and how they wanted to make a living. The first need was to find a place in a beautiful setting with affordable land where they would have a farm to grow the crops for a unique farm-to-table experience.
