My 'day Job' consists of mothering - human and camels (first and foremost), teaching others our Trust Based Camel Training™ method with Russell, mentoring business owners, writing, standing in front or behind a camera and throwing out To Do Lists because it's all too overwhelming!
I met my first few camels (and Camelman - Russell) in 2012, originally coming from the horse industry as a Natural Horsemanship trainer, camels were never in my life plan - ever! As the story goes, I feel in love with camels and then fell in love with Russell (in that particular order)!
As a keen naturalists (not that kind) I immersed myself into learning about how a camel thinks (completely different to a horse, incase you're wondering) camel handling, training and how to bonding with them. I'm a 'obsessive learner' which means in a short period of time (maybe one week or so) I gave up all my horses and turned camels into my life purpose.
I'm practical and hate time-wasting which means the Charity Camel Treks that I've organised and walked not only raised money for much needed causes, but also helped heal me from my past traumas. My first ever Charity Camel Trek was to help end child sex slavery, I was sexually abused as a child. My second Charity Camel Trek was to raise awareness about baby loss, Russell and I lost Noah at 3 days old back in 2015. I heal by helping others, it's always been in my nature since a child. My 6yo self had a knowing that "If I'm hurting, then someone else is too and they need my help".
Tara's strong connections with her camels has given her strength to help heal her past traumas.
