Our Speaker: Tara Claeys

Tara Claeys began her career in advertising and marketing in the early 1990’s. After her first child was born, she supplemented her full-time job as Mom with illustration and stationery design for clients around the world. Her extensive marketing background and understanding of business quickly became her focus. Founded in 2010, Tara’s agency, Design TLC, specializes in websites and digital marketing for small schools, enrichment programs, camps, and education-focused nonprofits.

When Tara isn’t redesigning websites, she can be found volunteering for a nonprofit, running, challenging you to get out of your comfort zone, or vacationing with her family.
