Tara went to Cal Poly to study nutrition and decided to make SLO her permanent home upon graduating in 2017. Her background includes nutrition and culinary education, event planning, and hospitality management. She started working for the SLO Food Bank in March 2019, which has fulfilled her long-time goal of working with the food insecure population. She is in love with this organization and its mission to alleviate hunger and is so grateful to grow in her career and life here. Outside of work, she can be found in the dance studio, skateboarding, hiking, cooking, or hanging out with her fluffy orange cat, Darius.
