Tara became the Program Coordinator for the Prison Teaching Initiative in 2016. She holds an M.A. in Educational Counseling from Rowan University and joint B.A. degrees in Philosophy & Religion and Literature from Stockton University. In her pre-Princeton life, she was a domestic violence/sexual assault counselor, AmeriCorps program coordinator, volunteer coordinator, philosophy professor, freelance editor, service-learning coordinator, Avon saleswoman, bartender, dry-cleaning operator, and babysitter. But this is definitely her favorite job.
