ABOUT US

When Tami Kamin Meyer moved to Columbus from her native Cincinnati to attend Capital University Law School in 1986, she was not a fan of the capital city. Despite her initial reservations, Columbus has “grown on me like a vine,” she says.

Editor of Write Now Columbus, Tami is the mother of two sons. One is a sports journalist and the other studying journalism in college. Kamin Meyer has been a freelance writer, editor and content creator since 1981. Her byline has appeared in a myriad of publications, including Parents.com, Apartmentguide.com, Forbes, MarketWatch, Next Avenue, Cannabis & Tech Today, Your Teen, Ohio Magazine and Columbus Monthly.

Licensed in Ohio, the state’s federal court and the US Supreme Court, Kamin Meyer is a solo practitioner representing clients in personal bankruptcy, probate and family law matters.

She served as Marketing/Communications Chair of the American Society of Journalists and Authors for three years, and is a member of the Columbus Bar Association’s Board of Editors.

Tami is an avid recreational kayaker, a “dog ma” of three rescues, and is involved in improv comedy.
