Tara Kuipers, MS
Principal & Owner, Tara Kuipers Consulting LLC
I am a South Dakota native who has called Wyoming home since 2000. My husband Jarren and I live in Cody, WY and spend much of our free time traveling and enjoying the great outdoors of the Rocky Mountain West and beyond. Some of my favorite activities are hiking, backpacking, cycling, kayaking and rafting. Jarren is a wildlife biologist and the owner of a conservation consulting firm, Land Steward Services LLC.
I have earned Masters’ degrees in both Counseling and Adult and Post-Secondary Education from the University of Wyoming, along with continuing education and certification in facilitation, strategic planning, coaching, mediation, public participation, change management and organizational development. Through my 20-year career in higher education, community development and nonprofit organizations, I have been a leader intent on strategic action, shared learning, and meaningful collaboration.
Since 2016, I have brought all of these skills and experiences to my role as owner and principal of Tara Kuipers Consulting. I look forward to finding out how I can serve you, your organization and your community!
