Tara is a certified holistic health and wellness coach.
About 7 years ago, she was diagnosed with Hashimoto's disease, and after several months of being "medicated" and still feeling terrible, she found a functional doctor who took her off gluten and used nutrition to help her heal. Her journey to health has been long and difficult, and as a result, she has a passion to help others navigate their own health and wellness. In 2016, after 20 years of teaching high school English, she left that career to become a Certified Health Coach.
Four years ago, she married Dr. Brandon Brock. One of his biggest challenges is helping his patients make lasting changes in their habits and diet and following up with them. They found that by working together, they can provide people with the support they need to make lasting changes and provide the best care possible.
Tara and Dr. Brock stay busy with their 4 children--one in middle school, one in high school, and two in college.
