Tara grew up in Rathdrum, Idaho and attended North Idaho College. From there, she transferred to Lewis-Clark State College to pursue a degree in Social Work. During her senior year, Tara spent 9 months as an intern for North Idaho College Head Start working with children ages 3 and 4. In the Summer of 2012, she began working with foster children in group home settings in Spokane. In hopes of finding something closer to home and the desire to work with those with behavioral and mental health challenges, she joined Innercept.
In her spare time, Tara enjoys spending time with her son and family outdoors.
