Tara’s journey into the health and wellness industry began with a natural curiosity about nutrition and how the foods we eat affect our bodies and our lives. What started as a curiosity became a full-fledged passion, leading her to seek out employment with health food stores and juice bars. Tara went on to become a Certified Nutritional Practitioner (CNP) upon completing her training at the Institute of Holistic Nutrition in Vancouver. As her co-op placement for the program, she had the honor of learning from and working with Nutritionists at Inspire Health here in Victoria.
Tara is also passionate about other areas of natural health including herbal medicine, ayurveda and aromatherapy. She has personally seen great benefit and healing from deep tissue massage and a regular yoga practice.
Tara loves hiking and being in nature, gardening, horse-back riding, DIYing natural body care creations, drawing or painting when inspiration hits, playing piano and singing. She also spends a large portion of her time in the kitchen, cooking and experimenting with healthy recipes. She has a slight addiction to browsing and book-marking endless recipes from her favourite health food blogs, so there is always lots to choose from!
