When she’s not assisting Aker Ink clients build their brands, Tatum enjoys running the many trails around Scottsdale or boating on local lakes with her family. She volunteers at St. Joseph the Worker and dotes on her cat, Candy, and dogs, Harvey and Goose.

Fun Facts

  • Trail Runner: A lover of the outdoors, Tatum frequently takes advantage of the trails in the McDowell mountains. Trail running started as a training method for Tatum’s college soccer fitness prep, but quickly became a hobby when she discovered the copious amounts of fun trails here in Arizona.
  • Boating Enthusiast: Quality time with Tatum and her family typically means early morning boating sessions at Saguaro Lake. If you see a boatful of girls surfing around, it’s probably Tatum with her two sisters and mom!
  • World Traveler: Before choosing to settle down in Arizona, Tatum spent the latter half of her collegiate experience studying abroad in Italy and England where she became conversational in Italian and learned she preferred the desert sun to the British rain.
