Tara is currently working in the United States Senate office of Senator Dianne Feinstein (CA-D). Prior to joining the Senate, Tara spent three years working in finance. She was an Investment Associate at Fundrise, a financial technology startup in DC, as well as a Securitized Product Sales Analyst for Nomura Securities International, an international investment bank in NYC.
While Tara had spent the majority of her career in the private sector, she knew she had a passion for public policy and service. In 2016, she worked as an Organizing Fellow of the Hillary for America Campaign, in addition to her full-time job at Fundrise. After the 2016 presidential election, Tara decided to leave the private sector to work in public service. In her spare time, Tara launched Iranians of America, a social media campaign dedicated to sharing the human stories and contributions of Iranian American immigrants in this country.
Tara is a 2014 graduate of the College of Arts and Sciences with a dual B.A. in Near Eastern Studies and Government. Tara is excited to spend some time in public service and intends to return to school in the future to seek her dual Masters in Public Policy and Business.
