The Journey During her career as a makeup artist, Tara has added her sparkle to productions for BYUtv, LDS Church productions and Disney Channel’s High School Musical. She is also the co-founder of Soul Food USA, an organization that had served more than 130,000 PB&J sandwiches with handwritten “You Matter” stickers to the homeless community. “We are all magic, and we have unlimited power to create lives of significance, meaning, beauty and joy. I love full out, and I live wholeheartedly — even if it means my heart gets battered or broken from time to time. I would rather leave it all on the dance floor when the music of my life stops playing, than sit on the sidelines safe and unscathed,” Tara says.

Road Blocks  “I believed that I had to hustle for my worth, and that the number on the scale determined the value of my soul. Finally learning that true beauty is not a reflection of the way I look but the result of the way I live changed not only who I saw when I glanced in the mirror, but the way I now look at the entire world.”

Mile Markers “We are in inexorably connected in this tapestry of human experience. Working with amazing actors and getting to be a part of making great movies is exciting, but seeing people choose to live as the star of their own lives … those are the milestone moments that make this journey so beautiful.”

Must-Haves “Chocolate, glitter and a phone charger.”
