I moved to London last year to open an office for the Messina Group, a consulting company that advises organizations and political campaigns. Prior to that, I worked for President Obama on his 2008 and 2012 campaigns and at the White House.

I grew up in Toms River, New Jersey, and received my undergraduate degree from Northwestern University.

Tara was a Cross Continent MBA student and blogger prior to the program's merger with the Global Executive MBA program.
