About Our Tara:
Tara is a certified holistic health counselor, nutritional consultant, food educator and private chef specializing in raw foods, vegan, vegetarian and allergy-free cooking. Her dream is to share her passion for good, simple, healthy foods and change people’s relationship with food forever.
Her relationship with food shifted in the late 1980’s after years of struggling with her weight. She was placed on diets at the age of 10 by her pediatrician. Between having children, she began practicing intuitive eating. Listening to her body and inner voice allowed her the freedom to bring joy back into eating, finding her true natural body and changing her relationship with food forever. In 2000, this journey led her to the Institute of Integrative Nutrition where she earned a certification in holistic health counseling.
She guides nutrition clients to have conscious awareness of food and gently create their own diets. Through teaching healthy cooking, Tara found her love for creative cooking, using simple, nutritious, colorful combinations that explode with flavor. In addition to being a counselor and educator, she has evolved into a raw foods chef.
Tara has spent decades studying numerous diets. She has also studied naturopathy, homeopathy, EFT, meditation, yoga, AIM, intuitive healing and is also an accomplished athlete. She has earned All-American honors in both college swimming and triathlon, where she was also a member of the US Team several times. She attended Villanova University and completed a B.A. in Psychology and Philosophy and began an M.S. in Exercise Physiology. She is also the mother of 3 grown children and presently lives in VT.
