How Tara is building a better working world

“Behind every piece of legislation, there is a story. I believe in bringing together both sides of the aisle; using data; and effective communications to help clients tell their stories. Beyond asking ‘Better Questions,’ I want to build a better working world by helping clients tell a better story to achieve their legislative and regulatory goals.”
