Tara can often be found in a sand box, at a park, building train tracks, singing nursery rhymes, or playing peek-a-boo…with her toddler son. She loves spending time with family, which usually includes watching college football and basketball (go Utes!). Tara doesn’t travel often but loves mini-weekend trips throughout Utah and surrounding states. More than anything Tara loves to laugh and try new things.
