While driving one day, Tara McKittrick and her daughter were involved in a catastrophic car accident in May 2006, in which Tara’s right leg sustained a severe crush injury and her daughter was paralyzed. As a result, she underwent a below knee amputation to save her life. With the help of her family, the support of her medical team, and her determination, she did not let the amputation slow her down. Holding onto that determination, she was able to complete her bachelor’s degree in nursing and now works as a full time nurse at two different medical facilities.

This requires her to be on her feet for several hours a day. She is also a proud supporter of her daughter who is highly involved in high school track. Tara continues to be very dedicated to the care and welfare of her daughter by assisting her with bathing and various personal care tasks, transferring her in and out of the family vehicle, and being an active part of her track training, along side her husband. As evidence of her highly active lifestyle, she also enjoys working in her yard, and working out multiple times a week including weight lifting and running.
