About Tara

On a daily basis, Tara analyzes, edits, and approves mortgage closing packages, HELOC loan documents, and real estate transactions to ensure their accuracy and compliance. In addition, she is depended on to grow and sustain her business to guarantee its continual progression. In this endeavor, Tara must maintain a client database, negotiate pricing, handle accounting and billing, and develop marketing initiatives to attract new clients.

Tara has over twelve years of customer service experience and seven years of supervisory and management practice. Prior to starting her own company, she was in the healthcare industry and held senior-level positions for companies such as Bannister House and New England Healthcare Employees Union. It was during this period that personal tragedy struck, leading to Tara’s recognition of the need for mobile notary services. She soon began to assist hospital patients with their closing documents and became involved with the National Notary Association.

Tara credits her success to a combination of hard work and overcoming numerous challenges. Although she was wholly engaged in taking care of her family, she was determined to start her own business and achieved that goal, despite numerous hardships.
