In her newly expanded role, Tara will coordinate open enrollment clinics held throughout Aroostook County in the fall. Community volunteers work alongside agency staff at these clinics to aid individuals in comparing benefit renewal options, along with the associated costs.

Tara graduated with a Bachelor’s Degree in Business Management from the University of Maine at Presque Isle. She was hired in 2005  by the Aroostook Agency on Aging and since that time has held several positions.

“I look forward to working with community volunteers to expand clinic and counseling offerings in this program,” explained Henderson. “The more volunteers we engage, the more people we can help with this important service.”
