Tara has wanted to work for the space program since she was a kid growing up in southern Louisiana. She’s worked her way up to her dream job, and has since encouraged others to pick their heads up and look around a bit beyond their everyday experiences.
Outside of her space career, she works to connect those who are looking for new experiences- big or small- with each other and with various programs. She’s a dynamic, down-to-Earth, relatable speaker, and someone who is just fun to talk with.
