Tara initially joined Harvard Pilgrim as a health educator and organizational development professional in its HR department, a position which she occupied for over 20 years. In that role she served as a coach, strategist, program designer and facilitator. It was in this capacity that she brought an introductory mindfulness course to Harvard Pilgrim’s own staff members in 2006, long before mindfulness had hit the mainstream. Since then, Tara has created a comprehensive suite of mindfulness workshops and courses that have been conducted at over 200 organizations across the U.S., in a wide variety of industries.
Additionally, Tara has spoken about mindfulness at numerous events domestic and abroad, and has contributed articles to Mindful Magazine and the Harvard Business Review blog. Tara became a student of mindfulness over 20 years ago, and sits silent retreats annually with the teachers at the Insight Meditation Society in Barre, Mass. Her other past lives include working as a massage therapist and assisting in hospice care. She lives in a barn in central mass with her golden retriever, Finn.
