Tara is an award-winning scholar, researcher, editor and writer, curator and collections manager, archivist and librarian, and tutor. She earned her Ph.D. at George Washington University, and has earned fellowships and awards ever since. Tara’s initiatives have led to note-worthy articles in The Washington Post and The New Yorker, among others.

Her constant thirst to do more, led her to the Arts, Military + Healing. Together, with a team of volunteers, Tara led a series of workshops and events, alongside cultural and educational institutions. Service members, veterans, military families, healing arts practitioners, and artists attended
