Tara has been working with animals for all of her life. Born and raised in Clearwater, her first job was working at a small Mom & Pop pet store. From there she moved to Sarasota to train and care for puppies and dogs that would eventually be matched as service dogs. Tara began her veterinary career as a Receptionist, and eventually became a Veterinary Technician in 2005. Five years ago, she moved back home to Clearwater and has been at Love Animal Hospital ever since.
Tara currently has a bossy Yorkshire Terrier named Duppers, and a 18 year old American Bulldog named Zi-Zi. They keep her very busy at home!
