Congratulations and welcome back to the region to BizComm alum Tara Shishmanian, who has accepted a job as a meetings project manager at Paralyzed Veterans of America in Washington, D.C. Tara left her position as the coordinator of volunteers at the St. Bernard Project in New Orleans to travel back to the Metro area. The Paralyzed Veterans of America is a congressionally chartered veterans service organization founded in 1946 that advocates on behalf of veterans of the armed forces who have experienced spinal cord injury or dysfunction.

Here she is during her internship at Grow & Fortify. Congratulations, Tara!
