Tara (she, hers) is a White, female, Licensed Master Social Worker, and educational consultant. Tara works to support the integration of mental health, wellness, and education in schools with a focus on mindfulness and trauma healing. Tara believes that well-being in education isn’t possible unless teachers, students, and families are able to show up as their full selves free from racism and systemic oppression. Tara is a mother of two little ones who inspire her and fuel her to do this work- and tire her out daily. As she has learned through many teachers in her life, Tara believes only through radical love, courageous collaboration, and diligent work can we dismantle White supremacy and create the world we all long and hope for.
