Tara Healey is Maura Healey’s sister. During the slow summer months, the rising Democratic star appointed her sister Tara Healey as executive director of her campaign committee, making the youngest of her four siblings her sole paid political staffer.
As per campaign manager Dave Guarino, Tara’s political expertise primarily comes from her volunteer work on her sister’s campaign, but she also holds an MBA from Simmons College and management experience. For eight years, Communities for People Inc. hired Tara Healey to manage the day-to-day operations of a care facility for young women in Boston.
