We know what it's like to lose a loved one and we're not afraid to talk about it.
Founding Team Member and Business Partnerships Lead
Dara was in college when her mom died of breast cancer. Among the many things that got her through was a group of people within her friend circle who had gone through similar experiences, and were comfortable talking about grief and loss. Today, she's working to create that same feeling of community and shared understanding for others. What's more, she's found that – more than a decade later – there is much that she has yet to acknowledge about her mom's absence and the role it continues to play in her life. She's grateful to be able to carve out space for those conversations, and is helping TDP grow its partnership network. Dara currently leads teacher recruitment and coaching for Curious, an education technology start-up in Silicon Valley. She previously developed experiential learning programs and conferences at Net Impact.
