Deputy Director (her/she)

Tara's passion for advocacy brought her to Rainbow Center where, as an advocate, she helped many community members to gain access to the resources, mental health providers, social connections and many other needed services.

She has spent many years advocating for individuals; those victimized by crime, seeking LGBTQIA+ competent providers, experiencing housing instability, lack of essential needs and social ties, and much more. In 2022, after years of dedicated service to her community as the Advocacy Manager, Tara was promoted to Deputy Director where, as part of Rainbow Center’s leadership, she manages Administration, Education, Advocacy, and daily Operations of the Rainbow Center. Tara continues to make Rainbow Center’s community members, partners, sponsors more inclusive and collaborative, and strives to cultivate deeper relationships between community members and Rainbow Center.
