Tara found her way to Arkansas by way of Southern California, and she’s got the sunny disposition to show for it. It was there that she began a career and cultivated a host of skills – supporting fundraising efforts, account management, public relations and more. But she’s always had ties to the Natural State, from summers spent visiting family to attending college in Fayetteville (go Hogs!), and these days she calls Greenbrier home. She loves the land, the trees and the people, and spends a lot of her free time taking it in – being outside, hiking, playing with her kids, enjoying game nights and reading. Her love for Arkansas is part of the reason she’s such a serendipitous fit for ERI. That, and her immaculate organization and project management skills.
