Heide Emrich ~ Chapter Champion Waterloo Wellington
Tara grew up in London Ontario, attending Catholic Central High School before attending University of Windsor and then Mohawk College. She is a Registered Nurse in Hamilton. She and her husband have four children all involved in varsity and professional sports.
As a Registered Nurse, Tara has worked in critical care most of her career and enjoys being engaged with patients and their families. She has had tremendous satisfaction from helping her patients through palliative situations. When she was approached about serving on the Board of Directors for Home Hospice Hamilton-Halton, she immediately knew that the cause was a perfect fit for her. Thinking down the road a few years, Tara had wondered about what she would do in retirement.
Right now, helping to manage support for people who are on their end of life journey seems like the perfect fit. In the mean time, Tara is serving as Chair of the Board and is always looking to educate her peers about HHA and its volunteer opportunities.
