Tara loves current affairs, literature and great television. She is fortunate in that she gets to apply her interests in her day job. As the western correspondent for BNN Bloomberg, Tara spends her day reporting on the top business stories out of western Canada, breaking them down and explaining why they matter in the bigger picture. In this role, she became Canada’s first national reporter who uses a wheelchair. She also recently completed an MBA in global energy management and sustainable development, which helps provide context in our country’s ongoing conversations surrounding pipelines and the resource industry. Tara sits on the boards of several not-for-profit organizations that support and empower our city’s more vulnerable citizens and was named one of Calgary’s Top 40 under 40 for 2018.
