Tara
TaraSecretary
Tara moved to the Rockford area in 2008. She’s a married, homeschooling mama of 3 kiddos ages 14, 6, & 3. She loves the Green Bay Packers, observing the night sky, thunderstorms, & anything Harry Potter related.

Tara’s Crunchy path began when she was expecting her second baby. Already passionate about breastfeeding, she began researching natural childbirth, cloth diapering, chemical-free cleaning, & alternatives to modern medicine. A friend invited her to a “Crunchy” FB group & a name was given to Tara’s search for a natural living community. When Rockford Crunchy Ladies came across Tara’s newsfeed, she didn’t hesitate to join!

Tara loves participating in local community events, meeting new people, & supporting small business owners. She’s met so many wonderful women through RCL & looks forward to helping other women find their tribe too.

Taisha lives in Rockford with her husband and three kids. She is an active homeschool mom supporting her kids’ different needs. When they aren’t busy with family matters or RCL, they can be found glamping on weekends and soaking up nature. Her mantra in life is “We live this life together”.
