Born and raised in Vancouver, Canada, Tara got her start as a print journalist before establishing her career on the Canadian Prairies, where she made the shift to broadcast news.
Tara is a storyteller and explorer at heart, driven by a desire to share impactful stories. She arrives in the Bay Area from Omaha, Nebraska where she reported for the NBC affiliate for three years. There she helped expose a lack of safe and affordable rental housing, primarily affecting refugee and immigrant communities. Her reporting resulted in the passing of a rental housing, landlord registry ordinance.
Her award-winning coverage of the 2019 historic Midwestern flooding dove deep into the aftermath and shed light on small towns struggling to come back from disaster.
Tara is proud to be joining the ABC7 team and is committed to continue telling stories that make a difference in the Bay Area.
