Her oldest is married with a 2 year -old and another on the way. Tara has been involved with several local co/ops and homeschool groups for 10 plus years here in Charlotte. In her spare time, Tara enjoys cooking, soaking in the sun, hiking, working out, enjoying the children and her beagle dog. I love working at Collins Clinic because I am passionate about health, wellness, and being the best, you can be! Consistent chiropractic care is a huge part of my well-being! “
Originally from the north, I have lived in North Carolina for over 10 years. After earning my Bachelor’s degree in Nutrition at Appalachian State University, I became a Chiropractic Assistant at Dr. Collins’ office in 2015 where I developed a love for chiropractic and encouraging healthy lifestyles. Outside the office, I enjoy traveling to new places, reading Harry Potter, buying new shoes, perfecting my yoga practice, and watching movies with the family.
I grew up in Charlotte and even though as an adult I have moved around a lot, I have always considered this area my home. I attended Bryan College in Dayton TN, where I earned a BA in Psychology and also met my husband there. We both became teachers and moved to Lawrenceville, GA to teach at Northeast Atlanta Christian School. A few years later, we moved to Columbia SC, to attend Columbia International University. There I earned a Master of Arts in Teaching, Elementary Education. We moved back to North Carolina to teach at Fayetteville Christian School. Our twin boys were born in Fayetteville in 1999. Shortly after their fourth birthday, we moved to Papua New Guinea to teach at an International School. We called PNG our home for 16 years. We recently moved back to the Waxhaw area to be closer to our parents. I’m excited to be a part of the team here as a Chiropractic Assistant providing care and helping people stay healthy!
