Passionate, persistent and prepared, Tara is excited to share the stories of the Twin Tiers. Hailing from Cheshire, Conn., but born in Buffalo, she is no stranger to Upstate New York. Tara attended the Roy H. Park School of Communications at Ithaca College, and interned with CNN, ESPN and NBC Connecticut News before her time in Elmira.

At Ithaca College, Tara was an active participant at ICTV News where she was an anchor, reporter and producer, leading a revamp of Good Day Ithaca, the station’s morning news show.
In her spare time, Tara enjoys playing and watching sports, especially her beloved Buffalo Bills and Buffalo Sabres. You can also find her whipping up tasty treats in the kitchen as a cook and baker.
