Tarrah was born in Washington State but has been blessed to have lived all over the world growing up as a military brat. She graduated from George Mason University with a B.A. in Communication and specialization in Public Relations. After working in the mortgage industry, Tarrah transitioned into the legal world, working as a paralegal until she received her J.D. in 2016.
Tarrah has worked in different areas of law but believes that her life experiences are invaluable to her practice in estate planning and administration. As a professional, business owner, wife and mother, she tries to connect on a personal level. From the first meeting, throughout the process and during some of the most difficult times our clients may face, she hopes to always be a guiding ally.
In her free time, she is usually found on the court or field cheering for her son, Brayden; visiting her son, Austin, in Charleston; enjoying a North Carolina winery with her husband, Patrick; or hanging out with her English and French bulldogs, Hoss and Cooper.
