As our chief operations manager, Tara handles most of the organization’s behind-the-scenes work, from managing grants to assisting with program development, and creating masterpieces from spreadsheets that keep our projects on track and our funders happy. From our larger public project reveals to smaller scale and individual engagement programs, nothing happens without some humming in the background. That’s Tara. Her attention to a thousand details and her passion for the intersection of arts & culture and community and economic development for all is key to how we get things done.
