Even before becoming a travel agent with Travel Leaders Travel Now in their New Richmond office, Tara had been coordinating group travel and events for years. Bringing people together with a wide range of ages and interests is a specialty of Tara’s. She is great at coming up with destinations and activities to satisfy everyone in the group. Whether you are a party of 2 or party of 52, finding your next adventure is her passion. With past experience in hospitality and also as a promotions coordinator, her transition to travel agent was a perfect fit.

She is active in her community and volunteers with fund raising for the local police department’s K9 unit and is a member in the local Lion's Club. She makes being busy look easy with her high organizational skills and attention to detail, which will put the perfect touch on your next get away.

A magical trip for a mom and her two children

Reviewed By Allison - Lake Elmo, MN | Traveled to Orlando ~ Florida ~ USA
Tara you made a single mom taking two small children on her own to a foreign city feel so comfortable and at ease. I can't thank you enough for helping me surprise my kids with a trip of a lifetime. Your experience with your recent visit there and knowledge of the mobile app made it very easy for me to understand and know what I was getting into :) Thank you for ALL your help and patience with my crazy schedule! I appreciate it so much!

Family Fun!

Reviewed By Holly - New RIchmond WI | Traveled to Puerto Vallarta ~ Jalisco ~ Mexico
We were traveling with our 17 year old daughter and wanted a two bedroom option, as well as a fun place to be active. Tara was accommodating in finding a variety of places that met our vacation wants and needs. She was prompt in replying to our questions and kept us informed in the planning process. Tara is the first travel agent we have worked with and we would welcome the opportunity to work with her again. Thanks Tara!

Mother daughter vacation!

Reviewed By Sara - Osceola, Wiscinsin | Traveled to Arizona ~ USA
This review may be unfair due to talking to several agents and then Tara had to pick up the pieces. It took a while to get everything coordinated and to gather all my conversations with other agents to get the end product. In the end Tara did deliver a wonderful vacation for myself and my daughter!

My Wedding in a Tropical Paradise

Reviewed By Theresa - New Richmond, WI | Traveled to Punta Cana ~ Dominican Republic ~ Caribbean
Tara was an absolute rock star through the whole planning of my destination wedding. She navigated through all the extensive details need to get married in the Dominican Republic: from communication with the wedding planner at the resort- to providing the information needed for the paperwork required for the actual ceremony. If she didn't have the answers to yy questions, she spent the extra time to find them for me. I cannot believe how far above and beyond she went to make sure my wedding went off beautifully!! I would recommend her services to anyone planning a vacation, destination wedding, or trip of a lifetime!!!! She was my Wonder Woman!! I want to thank Tara so much for helping make my dream wedding a reality!!

Fun adventure and Tara made it easy!

Reviewed By Mandy N - Center City, MN | Traveled to Dominican Republic ~ Caribbean
We started using Tara for our vacation travels and we haven't been happier with a travel agent. She helps us find the lowest rates and lines up transportation and excursions. She also has great resort suggestions.
One perk to working with an agent (Tara) vs online vendors is that she can request modification to your stay. For example, we asked Tara to request for us to be in a standard suite as close to the beach as possible on the second floor. Sure enough, we were as close to the beach as we could get (without upgrading) and on the second floor... and with a bottle of champagne lined up for us mind you! You just can't make those requests online.?? I'm a repeat client of hers and have confidently referred her to others and will continue to do so.

The Perfect Trip

Reviewed By Leah - Saint Cloud, MN | Traveled to Florida ~ USA
Tara found me the best rate for my trip to see friends and family in Florida! She found me the best deal ever on a non-stop round trip with a rental car. Tara worked hard finding me the flights even when I was back and forth with the dates I needed and the location I wanted to fly into. She was available by phone whenever I needed her. I HIGHLY recommend working with Tara for your next trip. She has a lot of experience booking trips for groups and has been to many unique, beautiful, fun places!

Wedding Tag-a-longs

Reviewed By Lucky Larry - New Brighton, MN | Traveled to Belize ~ Central America
Our trip was scheduled almost a year in advance. Even though it was a long time Tara always kept us updated with all important information. She gave us plenty of time so there was never any rush to get anything done. I think our situation was unique but the value was exceptional!

In my opinion Harvest Caye would be the "must see" destination. We were unfortunate and visited on a day with poor weather but it was perfect. Maybe a little touristy but it had everything I love. A swim-up bar in a huge pool, gigantic beach with super nice sand and plenty of places to relax in the sun. Plus it was one of the longest days trips.

Roatan was interesting but we just walked around the town with one of the locals. He was very informative but I didn't really need to go there without seeing a beach.

We stayed in the Marriott 555 and yes I would recommend it. Beautiful room and super nice bar with great access to Bourbon street.
Thanks for a great trip Tara!

Thank you Tara, I will be in touch next year's vac

Reviewed By Eskimom - New Richmond WI | Traveled to Mesa ~ Arizona ~ USA
Tara worked to ensure my short notice trip, with special request to make pick up and drop off convenient for others to do possible. Then to top it off about 6 hours later I suddenly had to add a hotel with shuttle to the airport for one of the nights, the location she found was conveniently located near campus, walking distance to many food establishments, a wonderful "adult watering hole" and a billiard Hall where we were able to rent a table for $8.50 per hour, I will definitely book again with Tara
