Hi, I’m Tara.
I’m an accredited career development practitioner and my work is all about understanding what it takes to live a fulfilling life. Satisfaction at work, and more broadly in life, is what interests me.
Working out what I wanted to do with my life led me to career development as a field, and I found my niche. I’ve worked in public service, non-profit, small business, and self-employment before my current role in higher education.
I love helping people understand themselves so they can find meaning at work and make good choices that suit them. All jobs have the potential to be meaningful.
My version of success is finding contentment with life, and I focus as much on wellbeing and hobbies as jobs.
I’m also a nature lover and photography enthusiast who enjoys being in remote wilderness as much as my own garden.
I love dogs, especially my bull terrier Pepper, reading, and music. I am terrified of big, hairy spiders. I dreamed of being a journalist for National Geographic when I was growing up, I still pretty much do.
