Hi, I’m Tara

Hi! I’m Tara, a doctorate nurse practitioner, fertility coach, and infertility “warrior”. I’ve spent the past decade pursuing nursing, including a master’s and doctorate degree. Like you, I endured a long road through endometriosis, and miscarriage, followed by infertility treatments and a traumatic pregnancy. I sought professional and medical intervention from two fertility clinics as my medical mind was spinning which led me to google and social media for answers.

I was lonely, confused, overwhelmed from the weight of infertility.


Karmen Steffan
I can't begin to explain how amazing Tara is. She has figured out more for me in my health journey in a few months than previous health professionals did in a lifetime. She takes her time with every visit and I never feel rushed. She answers my questions and checks in with me frequently. Tara's main concern is the patient and her passion and dedication shows with every interaction. The world needs more practitioners like Tara.
Kali Askvig
I’ve spent so much time going from doctor to doctor hoping someone would listen, then I found Tara! She’s been so helpful in my journey through figuring out my health. I’ll continue to go to her for as long as I need to!
Danielle Goebel
Tara is a caring, knowledgeable medical professional for any and all issues! She is so easy to work with, always has or will seek out the answers to questions and concerns. Her telehealth visits are easy and convenient and Tara is always flexible with scheduling. I have referred many friends and family with great results. Her passion for her patients is unmatched!
Susan Ziegler4j
Jenny Dewey Rohrich
Tara is a rarity in a provider. She’s knowledgeable well outside of routine medical practice, not afraid to seek a more holistic route in treating patients, and listens and asks questions to see the larger picture of health. Her passion is clearly healing people, not just treating them. I cannot recommend Tara enough as a provider and seeing her via telemedicine makes it so much easier for those of us with busy schedules and juggling several kids.
Sarah Kovash
Tara is the most caring, knowledgeable, and trustworthy medical professionals and individuals. She takes the time to listen, validate, and assist with any and all concerns I have brought to the table. Appointments are super easy to make and offered at convenient times for those that work the typical M-F 8-5 jobs. If you're looking for a medical professional who will go out of their way to make you feel validated while also assisting with your concerns, there is no better option than Tara!
Debbie Sayler
Mary Paulsrud
Tara is a gem. She is trustworthy, knowledgeable, and will help you any way she can. I trust her completely with any issues and know that she will listen and guide me in the right direction.
tina heth
I have spent years trying to get a medical professional to LISTEN to my issues and find a solution outside of "eat better". I had an in passing conversation with Tara in a social setting and in 15 mins felt more understood than I ever had in any professional medical setting. One virtual (EVENING!!) appointment later I had so much new knowledge, a plan, and HOPE. I learned that the "basic blood panels" Id been getting had a low chance of helping diagnose what could be causing my symptoms. Tara is so thorough, so knowledgeable, and so comfortable to be around. She seems like someone who has heard it all and seen it all and can help with ANY "weird" thing going on. She isnt quick to jump to prescription solutions which I appreciate. My journey isn't based in trying to get pregnant but she treated my hormonal struggles the same as someone with a different goal. I am eternally grateful to Tara and the endless wealth of knowledge she has.

it doesn’t have to be this way

After experiencing a long road through infertility, I decided I wanted to help couples in their journey to grow their family. I chose to change paths to provide a full suite of coaching services and support for those struggling to build their family.
