Tamara Sellman, RPSGT, CCSH is a career journalist (Columbia Chicago, ’90). She was diagnosed with idiopathic hypersomnia and upper airway resistance syndrome (UARS) in 2010.

Sellman worked overnight shifts in the sleep lab for nearly two years before seeking daytime work. Now she writes news copy and educational materials for the sleep technology field and serves as a freelance sleep health journalist, curator, and blogger.
