A print journalist by training, Tara has worked in nonprofit communications and development since moving to Portland in 1999. Prior to joining The Intertwine Alliance in 2014, she worked for Open Adoption & Family Services, Hand in Hand: Center for Jewish-Arab Education in Israel, and Oregon Food Bank. Tara is passionate about equitable access to nature, collaborating with partners all over the region, and cross-sector issues like houselessness.
Tara spends as much time as she can wandering outside looking for salamanders, frogs and other little creatures -- and sharing the joys of nature with her 14-year-old son. They also like to cook together, read, sing and dance, camp and paddle.
