Tara's diverse nursing background will complement her practice as a FNP. Her experience includes the areas of diabetes and metabolic disorders, pre and post large organ transplant, adult trauma intensive care, and pre and post same day surgery.

Her decision to specialize in family practice was to give her the opportunity to take a more holistic approach to caring for patients and their families. Tara believes in treating patients with compassion and respect and empowering them to make healthy decisions about their lifestyle and treatment options.
