paula mallis, founder & creative director of wmn, facilitator of women's gatherings and doula

"Tara has a unique ability to bring together brands and individuals to create meaningful and impactful events. Since the day I met her, she has displayed a unique sensibility and real understanding of what women care for whether that be for their own self-care, professionally, balancing motherhood and relationships.   Tara works with brands to create a real and lasting “experiences” for these women, myself included."

allison olesky, ceo sho+co

Tara has a true gift for synthesizing passion and turning it into action. You are a lucky entrepreneur if you find yourself in the hands of Tara Parker Tait."

natalie kuhn, director of operations, the class by taryn toomey

 

“Tara is an amazing event organizer who looks deeper, beyond the surface for opportunities to connect women in business  -  with community being a key value.”

sasha plasvic, founder & ceo of ilia beauty

Tara is comforting, intelligent, and so easy to talk to all the while pulling you closer to YOU in such a masterfully gentle way. Her active listening creates circumstances to get to the core of what you are trying to evolve, whether it’s professionally, creatively or personally. Tara’s unique gift is her way of asking questions that unpack that part that needs to evolve or change perspective.”

kim jacobs, writer and director

"When I met Tara, I wasn't building a new business, I was 14 years in already. I reached out to her because I wanted to make my business work better for me and I wanted to get out of my I'm-too-busy-I'm-a-working-mom mindset and to begin to make meaningful and authentic connections with women I admire and build a community of like-minded women. Tara's inclusiveness has made a difference. I have a more positive attitude about work and the new, collaborative relationships I've made have changed my ideas about future work and how I plan to spend my time. I'm headed in a healthier, happier direction, and Tara's warmth, authenticity and support were key to helping this come about. Tara is a rare gift."

laura kleinhenz,ceo and founder of docuvitae

"Tara finds the magic and weaves it together into healing gatherings that feed your mind, body, heart and soul." 

lauren roxburgh, bestselling author, presenter and alignment specialist

"Tara is one of those magic women who knows all the right people and if she doesn’t know you, she will! She knows the women who truly hunger for each other but may not know it yet. Tara brings these women together, creating remedies inside meaningful moments that ripple out to create real change for the world."

jules blaine davis, kitchen healer, facilitator of women's gatherings & artist

"The Great Jane left me feeling empowered and energized, utterly refreshed, and wide open to all the love and kindness and opportunity that the Universe would throw in my direction. I look forward to seeing what new masterpieces of motivation and self-care Tara can create, and can’t imagine a better person to do so."

sarah elder, coo of kalisher arts

“Tara is an invaluable resource to women! She will empower you to awaken your potential, discover authentic connections, build a brand that makes a difference and create a massive imprint on the world. Working with Tara isn’t just about growing your business, she creates the space for so much more; you’ll learn to let go of what no longer serves you and rediscover where your path is already taking you.”

michele kambolis, author, parenting columnist, clinical therapist and founder of chi kids

 

“From the second I spoke to you on the phone I knew you were a good one. You made me feel comfortable in a way that not many other woman whom you've never met can do. You showed nothing but love and patience as I pounded you with a million questions and travel updates. When I arrived at The Great Jane I was a little nervous, but you put any uneasy feelings to rest the second I step foot on the grounds. Your warm, welcoming demeanor and ability to connect women who are likeminded and some who are not, is a gift. You made everyone at The Great Jane feel special in their own way... and that each mama being there was a piece of a puzzle that couldn't or wouldn't be complete without them. I thank you from the bottom of my soul for including me in the magic."
