Tara Eyvette Grant was born and raised near Charleston, South Carolina. She received two years of higher education at Benedict College in Columbia, South Carolina, and then joined the U.S. Army in order to use the G.I. Bill to assist her in completing her education. After twenty-five years in the Army, Tara graduated Magna Cum Laude with her Associate’s degree in Culinary Arts from Stratford University. She is currently pursuing her Bachelor’s degree in Hospitality Management concentrating on Hotel and Restaurant Management at Stratford as well, with an expected graduation in December 2018.

Tara joined the Army in 1989 as an Automatic Switching Systems Operator/Maintainer, and spent her military career working with telephone and computer systems.

Tara hopes to gain the practical knowledge and experience to bring her dream of owning her own restaurant and catering company into reality. She is very excited about this upcoming adventure and looks forward to all it encompasses. Her favorite baked good is peach cobbler.
