Tara has been with PARA since 2015, overseeing the Association’s communications, as well as playing a key staff role in advocacy efforts and initiatives, including the Diversity/Inclusivity portfolio and PARA advocacy related to PracID restrictions and physician resource planning.
Tara is a passionate communicator and self-proclaimed word nerd, as well as a committed community volunteer. She is also an avid hockey fan, shoe connoisseur and travel addict. Her perfect day would include copious amounts of coffee, a beach, a good book and non-stop tunes.
Having just started in September 2021, Emma is brand new to PARA and is here to help with any and all member queries.
In her off time, Emma loves to travel and has spent the last four years travelling and living overseas. Some of her favourite places include Greece, Croatia, Italy and Australia, where she resided for the last two and a half years; she is fearful of her first Canadian winter back! Emma loves dogs (ALL of them) and has a three-year-old Greyhound whose photos take up 99% of her phone storage.

Robin works closely with the Vice President of Community and Internal Relations and the Community and Wellness Committee, organizing well-being related activities and initiatives, as well as overseeing wellness grants and event funding. She is also a staff liaison to the Inclusivity and Anti-racism Working Group.
In addition, Robin works in the areas of Agreement Compliance and organizing Letters of Understandings annually. If you have any questions on the Agreement, she is more than happy to help! Robin sits on Health and Safety Committees with AHS and other unions.
Robin moved to Alberta from Ontario a few years ago and although she misses the Great Lakes and raccoons, taking trips to the mountains and the antics of magpies help fill the void in her heart. She enjoys cooking, growing all varieties of tomatoes and listening to 99% Invisible, ideas and Planet Money.
