Tara is a Business Owner and Coach at Parene. Coming out of college during the recession, the safer option was to stay in her career in Retail. She was very successful and climbed the ladder rapidly in this role. She couldn't find a job in the Philosophy factory and to pursue Psychology meant going back to College. When Tara became a parent, she realized the erratic and demanding hours no longer worked for her. She switched to recruitment where she got to work on global projects and be a part of some amazing industry changing think tanks. She knew she wanted more and during her second maternity leave she decided she needed to begin her own practice to help other parents find more empowerment too. She created Parene to empower parents to Think, Act and Lead without Limits both in their careers and as individuals. It has taken her too long to realise there is no linear career path and how having a mentor can help your growth exponentially. Parene's offerings have expanded rapidly due to collaboration and networking and she cannot wait to be a part of someone else’s journey!
