After becoming a mom at 20, Tara decided to turn her personal story into a movement to create more opportunities for other young mothers.
She is a avid blogger, posting daily on the thrills and challenges of being a 20something mom at TheYoungMommyLife.com, one of the top blogs on the web for young moms.
She was a keynote speaker at the National Crittenton Foundation’s annual meeting and reception in Washington, D.C., and participated in its Hill Day, where she accompanied Crittenton agency directors on Congressional visits to advocate for policy changes that affect young mothers. She also writes for the Massachusetts Alliance on Teen Pregnancy’s blog, The Pushback.
She works with nonprofits, businesses and other individual bloggers to make their messages shine. (Get more information on her consulting services here.)
She’s currently pursuing a Master’s degree in Family Studies from Kent State University. She lives in Ohio with her husband and two children.
