Tara is a business owner and a nurse who served on the frontlines of the pandemic. She is a native Texan and a mother of three who is running to represent Fort Worth's newly drawn District 11 on the city council. Tara's commitment to servant leadership is rooted in her belief that the constituents of this new minority opportunity district deserve to be represented by someone who understands their perspective. As a representative of neighborhoods that have been overlooked for decades, she is eager to listen to the community's concerns.

Tara wants to ensure that the District 11, which has historically been disenfranchised or overlooked, has a strong voice.

She is dedicated to advocating for fair treatment, representation, and equality for all residents of District 11. Her experience in business, healthcare, and as a mother gives her a unique perspective that she will bring to the council. Tara is passionate about creating positive change in her community and is ready to serve the people of District 11 with honesty, integrity, and hard work.
