I take great pride and care of the reputation I have worked so hard to develop. As a business owner as well as a manger of people and processes I wear many hats in my business but I never lose sight of the importance of the trust we must build and earn with everyone we do business with. I look forward to many more years helping others and doing what is right for the client first and always. I have built that mentality into our business practice and everyone who works here operates under the same principles and ethics.

Tara joined the Washington Crossing family in 2017 as a licensed agent. She started out as a customer service representative with Nationwide Insurance in 2007. While working there, she obtained her P&C and life license and has since enjoyed working in the insurance industry ever since. She loves getting to know her clients and feels its important building a good rapport and taking the extra time to get to know them on a personal level.
I really enjoy what I do! Insurance is another language to most. Being able to help my clients understand it in simplest terms is important. While we always hope for no losses as drivers and homeowner’s we all know that things happen. Knowing I can help with the process and ease their minds during what can be a very stressful moment is very important and something I enjoy doing for our clients!
While not in the office, Tara loves spending time with her husband and daughter. They all have a huge love of animals. She is actively involved in her community barn and together with her family, volunteers most nights and weekends to caring for all the horses and taking leisure trail rides with her own horse, Bubba!

I truly love what I do. I love sitting with a client and reviewing their policies and explaining the importance of the coverage and limits on the policy. I believe that people set out to find a lower premium, but they like being educated in understandable terms better. I realize that price is always a consideration but I retain and keep my clients happy with my devotion to customer service. I endeavor to make each client feel like they are my only client.

l started doing customer service as a second job and a way to make ends meet. I never thought I would enjoy dealing with the public as much as I do. Being a single mother of 3 boys, I know the struggles that people may have, I keep that in mind when someone calls and I’ve learned if you stay positive and take the time to listen, a client appreciates that.
