She connects with her patients on a personal level and is open to learning how to better serve them. Tara has a familial history of addiction, anxiety, and depression that went untreated. She wants to help others, so they don’t go through what she experienced. Tara is active with her family and enjoys fishing, working on vehicles, and taking family vacations.
