Physical Therapist Assistant, PTA
Tara wanted to become a physical therapist assistant because she knew it would give her the opportunity to connect with people through movement. She strives to educate patients on how to move and exercise properly as they work towards their goals. Tara believes, “To live well we have to move well.” Tara enjoys helping educate her patients by making them be active participants in their care while working towards their goals. “I want my patients to know why I am doing what I am doing and how their body works. I want them to leave not only feeling better but with the knowledge to continue moving well.”
Tara started with OST in October of 2022. She is originally from Marquette Michigan, and is now living in Green Bay with her husband, Ryan, and their kitty, Obi. Outside of work, Tara enjoys mountain biking, running, hiking, and working on puzzles.
