Tara Pack was born a Tarheel, straight from Lexington, N.C. Her dream job, however, was to work at Pipestem Resort State Park. After all, she married a local farm boy, one of the Packs from River Ridge Road.
Before her path would take her along the country roads of West Virginia, she graduated from the University of North Carolina at Greensboro, earning a degree in public relations, marketing and communications. From there she went to work for U.S. Trust, a wealth management firm in Greensboro.
Her heart was leaning toward working with children or abused families, which led to her next role, serving as a victim advocate – someone who supports any victim of crime or their families.
