"Tara is an outgoing, energetic, personable, dependable, "think outside the box" type of person. When she plans events, meetings or outings, she makes sure that every detail is covered. She thinks of the guest and their needs. She plans for "what ifs" and thinks ahead to avoid disappointment on the side of the guest. Her leadership skills are remarkable and her teamwork skills are what it takes to make anything she is involved with a success. When she does anything, she puts 100% of herself into it. I would work with Tara on any project or event that came up. She is a rare gem and I would welcome her on my team."
