Tara was born and raised in Calgary and spent several successful years working in Calgary’s corporate world. Her passion, however, for rescuing animals with complex medical needs inspired her to change her path and pursue a career in veterinary medicine. After studying Biochemistry and Nutrition at Memorial University of Newfoundland, Tara was accepted into the University of Calgary Veterinary Medicine Program (UCVM).
Tara graduated with distinction from UCVM and was awarded the Spirit and Serena Sunderji Award which recognized her excellence in small animal medicine.
Tara enjoys all aspects of small animal medicine and loves working with owners to help give the best care to their furry family members.
In her spare time Tara can be found with her fiancé Jared and their sweet rescue pups, Radar and Fiona, as well as their two playful cats, Widget and Sullivan.
