My strengths journey began in 2004. As lead of human resources at a Marriott Vacation Club property we partnered with the Gallup organization in an employee engagement initiative. The first step was staff participation in StrengthsFinder. My first reaction "... this is me!". A deep seeded connection with strengths had started.


My path over the next 10 years led me to places near and far and a career change. Over time I found myself in a role that did not play to my strengths every day which led to lack of motivation, disengagement, and questioning. This culminated to a tipping point that pushed me to make a change. A change that gives me the opportunity to do my best every day - lead with my talents and strengths as a Gallup Certified Strengths Coach.  I am proud to report that I am no longer a square peg in a round hole.


My background in human resources, psychology, and project management brings a perfect blend and balance to my coaching. With a natural focus on the positive that each individual holds, I am able to guide them to success with a clear road map.


"Tara, I just read this in a little book called "Wide Open" by Dawna Markova:

"Where do your talents and the needs of the world intersect?  What would have to happen for them to dance with each other?"

It is my impression that with your coaching, you have found that intersection. Enjoy the dance!"
