Tara was raised by a pair of ex-Olympian parents, who wanted their daughter to become an Olympian like they were. Her father’s event of choice, the Biathlon, her mother, gymnastics.
However, Tara loved the performing arts, and her father didn’t want her showing off her “assets” on some stage to an oversexed crowd and actively discouraged her from that pursuit.
Reluctantly, she went along with it. To her credit, Tara was a talented gymnast as well, but didn’t place on the Olympic team, but did manage to get a gymnastics scholarship to a prestigious university but after an injury forced her off the gymnastics team and lost her scholarship as a result. This brought on the ire of her demanding father, who shunned Tara for not being more careful.
Tara was forced to get by on her other talents; her singing and dancing. She managed to find work for a number of local bands and to her credit, she did a great job of supporting herself. She got the attention of her future husband where they were a steady item for the years to follow.
Tara went on to get her degree and moved onto psychiatry, thinking it was as cerebral a pursuit as she could to distance herself from her more flamboyant performance past.
