As a philanthropist and mentor of the Women’s Welfare to Work program and founder of Tiny Be Mighty, Tara was recognized by the California and Connecticut State Senate and Congress for her participation and work. When her son Corey was diagnosed with a condition known as Achondroplasia or “Dwarfism”, there was little doubt in Tara’s mind that her son was born with a mighty purpose.
Tara has embarked on a personal endeavor to raise awareness about dwarfism and to offer a resolution for bullying. Thus, she invented a new cutting-edge App called Bullying Buddy, to serve as a solution to bullying and adolescent suicide. Lastly, her life’s creed is whatever we put in the universe will never return voided, so we should make it our best!
