Tara is a health and lifestyle coach, mental health advocate, nutrition educator, researcher, writer, and speaker. She is currently studying to receive her PhD in Psychosocial Health.

Tara has been eating a whole food, plant-based diet for over 7 years. During that time, she has worked with the Physicians Committee (PCRM) as the Nutrition Project Coordinator and Executive Assistant to Dr. Neal Barnard, with Engine 2, with Forks Over Knives, and most recently with Mastering Diabetes as their Director of Nutrition Education.

Tara is particularly interested in the emotional and psychological side of healthy eating, and she guides others in doing the inner work to form a healthy relationship with food, body, and self through her social media presence, personal coaching, and in-person retreats.
