Nurse Tara is originally from a small town in Illinois and has always loved the mountain west. When everything fell into place in 2014, she and her family came to Idaho and have taken full advantage of the exciting and beautiful things the Boise area has to offer. She has a bachelor’s degree in Art, and in 2007 earned a second bachelor’s degree in Nursing from Illinois State University. Although she still loves art, she feels fulfilled working as a nurse and especially loves the personal interactions with her patients. Tara is married and has three entertaining boys.
