Tara has worked for the Board since 2009 in the Technical Services Department and currently coordinates the department’s workload as director. She fell in love with the North living and working seasonally at Kasba Lake where she manned a weather station. After completing a Bachelor’s of Science in Agriculture from the University of Saskatchewan (major Plant Science, minor Soil science), Tara gained experience in project and personnel management working with non-profit organizations and the City of Edmonton at the Muttart Conservatory. Looking for new opportunities, Tara’s family was drawn to Nunavut and she pursued opportunities at the NIRB. In addition to her work, Tara enjoys travelling to remote communities and finding new ways to grow plants for food in an arctic climate.
