Senior Programs Director

Tara manages the Social Integration programs for Conexión Américas, programs that create alliances and friendships, answer important questions for immigrants in a new land, and deepen the roots of Latino families in Middle Tennessee.

Given all she does, it is why we’re glad Tara — who started her career at Conexión Américas with a year-long internship — has such a keen eye for detail, for specifics.

The “super detallista,” as she’s known in the office, is a native of Blowing Rock, N.C. and a graduate of Wake Forest University, where she studied religion and Spanish and volunteered in an after-school program for Hispanic children.

In 2011, Tara received a Master of Divinity from Vanderbilt University. That means she preaches regularly, and in both English and Spanish.

See? Detailed and multi-talented.

Tara quoted:

“We really do strive to change things at both a systemic level and at the individual level. At Conexión Américas, we understand that our work is deeply interrelated with and connected to other types of social change.”
