“We were desperately looking for someone to help introduce the heart of Rainbow Place Shelter to our community. Tara came highly recommended, and she deserved every word of praise that preceded her! She immediately started interviewing clients, staff, and volunteers to gain a full understanding of our work and its impact. Tara created a wealth of fabulous content that we can now use on social media, in grants, and on our website. She also mapped out, and created content for, a critical fundraising effort we are planning for the fall.
Working with Tara has been a wonderful dream. She is very responsive, has great ideas, is a terrific writer, and has the initiative to plan from scratch, with little to no guidance. I hope to have the opportunity to work with Tara for many years to come!”
-Nina Blecher, Director of Development, Rainbow Place Shelter
“I have known and worked with Tara for several years. She has a keen editing eye, is very responsive, and stays ahead of deadline. Most important of all, she is a fantastic writer.
Her love of travel made her the perfect fit for our first Discover Greenville, S.C., special section. I was on a very tight schedule to produce this section, and Tara jumped in immediately with her interest, availability, and a list of questions to better craft the section. She was more than willing to jump on a conference call with myself and the client. Her willingness to be involved in the initial planning of the section, combined with her attention to the details that any traveler would want to know, sets her apart from other freelance writers that I have recently worked with. She truly gives travel an authentic, informative voice, when it would be very easy to provide cookie-cutter details.
I look forward to working with Tara again!”

“Tara is a fast, responsive quality writer! Working with her on our Fall 2016 Travel section was refreshing. Our clients were impressed with her professionalism, and our team was beyond pleased with the finished product she provided.
She not only completed the project right on time, but also managed to provide the requested photos, captions and credits—a notoriously challenging task for freelancers. She understood the audience for the piece and catered to it with her smart, engaging writing.
Our sales team did not have a single change to the section—a first for us! We look forward to working with Tara more on upcoming special sections in the Magazine.”
