Team Member Spotlight: Tabatha

I was born and raised in Pocatello, ID and I could not wait to get out. After a couple year hiatus in Boise to get my graduate degree I came back to my hometown and fell in love with it. Someday, my sweetheart and I hope to go back to his family’s original homestead and build a house. My boyfriend, Tyler, and I have lived in five cities and three states together since we met six years ago. We moved to Utah for his job, and we love being closer to family and the mountains. 

While attending Boise State University, I started working in non-profits and became obsessed with finding ways to help people. I graduated with a Masters in Applied Historical Research and started off my career as the director and curator of a small museum in Pocatello. We moved to Montana in early 2013 where I worked as a program manager for the Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) program where volunteers prepare taxes FOR FREE for low to moderate income taxpayers. I absolutely adore the program and continue to volunteer for it today. I wrapped up my time in Montana working for First Interstate Bank Foundation where I assisted our employees in giving back to their communities. It was one of my favorite jobs ever!

I truly enjoy my current job as the Northern Utah Community Liaison for Help Me Grow Utah. I appreciate working for an agency that is so willing to help everyone. One of my favorite things about the program is that everyone is eligible as long as they live in Utah and are expecting or have children up to the age of 8. This job has given me such a great opportunity to seek out all the amazing organizations that are available to our families.
