Let’s get to know Tara!
What made you want to work as a Field Marketer for California Casualty?
I’m a self-starter and liked that the Field Marketing Manager position was an opportunity to create and manage my success.
I also wanted to have a better work-life balance and CalCas provided that for me too!
What is your favorite part about your job?
Our members and leaders: everyone that I get to interact with daily keeps everyday fun and exciting. I love that my job is never boring!
CalCas cares about us as individuals and our overall well-being. It is nice to work for a company that values their employees and members.
I also enjoy the flexibility of planning my schedule and what we do for members like our Music and Arts Grant. Presenting multiple grants last school year was so rewarding and meaningful for me because I was involved in those programs when I was in school.
What have you learned in your position at California Casualty?
I have learned how to read people and their needs, the amazing work that our members do, and more about myself.
What are your favorite activities to do outside of the office?
I’m a self-proclaimed foodie and enjoy cooking and eating; a lot of eating! My favorite meal to make is Chicken Parmesan.
I’m also a music junkie so I love to go to concerts, play guitar & ukulele, and make custom playlists for my friends and family.
