Tara is well versed in provincial and federal environmental regulatory requirements and regularly advises on the Alberta Wetland Policy and Water Act, Alberta Wildlife Act, Migratory Birds Convention Act and Regulations, Species at Risk Act, and the Canadian Environmental Assessment Act. She has complementary skills in project management, air photo interpretation and mapping, GIS, and environmental monitoring.

Tara is a SALMTEC founder and project manager for the successful Grassland Vegetation Inventory: A User's Guide training course. Laurie Hamilton and Tara have worked and volunteered together since 2006. In 2015, the dynamic duo became co-founders of SALMTEC to fulfill their shared vision of creating a way to provide relevant, practical, high quality and accessible training and education opportunities to the environmental management community: colleagues, students, experts looking to expand knowledge areas. Thus SALMTEC was formed - a framework based on collaboration that provides opportunities for subject matter experts, participants, land managers, and users in general.
