My coaching style is every bit authentic and driven by empathy, compassion, and data!

My personal mission is to help you identify and
align to your truest values, passions, and dreams
My passion for helping others achieve their best in life has always been within me. Having been through multiple personal transformations myself, I have developed skills and deep understanding of what it takes to face fear and facilitate personal and professional change. Change that will add immediate value and will be sustained for an infinite period of time. I'm not just a survivor, but a thriver through uncertain times and necessary transformation. Over 20 years as a senior leader in the corporate world, a mom of two, over a decade in long-term addiction recovery, and marathoning, has given me a toolbox of techniques and wisdom to share and partner with you to learn how to Create Opportunity Perspective Excellence (COPE).
My coaching and professional experience and credentials include; International Coaching Federation (ICF), Associate Certified Coach (ACC), Certification in Recovery Coaching by CCAR, a BA in Psychology, an iPEC Certified Professional Coach, a master practitioner of Energy Leadership Index, COR.E Performance Dynamics Specialist Certification, Positive Intelligence (PQ) Certification, Women’s LEAD, high performing team development, and the development of the highly effective COPE and SMEEPS-cret programs. Personal accomplishments in the world of marathoning; completion of 5 full marathons (3 of 6 World Abbott Majors) and over 20 half marathons in 13 of our US 50 states.
I absolutely insist on enjoying life, I refuse to struggle as I strive to show up as the best version of me today. I want to help you develop the tools to live your best life and achieve all of your goals, personally, academically, and professionally!
"Tara went above and beyond with me. She quickly helped me identify my strengths and challenged me to find ways to believe in myself. I left every session with renewed sense of purpose and drive. Words alone cannot describe what her coaching has done for me."
"It was really really great working with Tara. It was an eye opening experience to say the least. Somewhere along the line, I had forgotten I have dreams and choices and Tara helped me to realize both. I am now on a career path and adventure of a lifetime that was opened up for me by working with Tara. Great experience! I highly recommend her!"
“Tara's leadership and career coaching changed my life. Tara helped me realize I have choices in what I do and where I go: Forward! Tara is incredibly insightful, affirming and down to earth. She helped me clearly realize my strengths and how valuable they are. Throughout the work we did, I was able to find the right position, with the right team, at the right company for me!”
