Tara Jean McDonald

Marketing Specialist/Patient Care Coordinator and Concierge

I studied Marketing and Theater at Fordham University in New York City.  Upon graduating, I worked for an advertising company in New York while performing in local off-Broadway theaters and TV commercials. As time passed, I became more and more drawn to marketing and writing and thoroughly enjoyed being part of this exciting field. 

Fast forward to recent years, where my passion for marketing, acting and all things beautiful led me to work at a medispa helping to promote, market and manage the growing practice.  I have an affinity for blogging, social media marketing and website design.  The beauty of my position at La Fleur also allows me to be part of the concierge team where I am able to develop relationships with our amazing clients and assist them throughout their appointments.  I love this aspect of my work because I feel it is important to make people smile and feel comfortable both as they arrive and as they are leaving. I most enjoy promoting Dr. Verma and all of our talented and skilled providers, believing they are the most exceptional team of any medispa.

On quiet days, I spend time with my three lovely daughters and fiancé.  I enjoy music, theater and movies both as a viewer and as a performer. 

I believe that with today’s technology and the right guidance, we are able to maintain the beautiful looks we were born with and stay forever young.

Certified Medical Assistant/Certified CoolSculpting Specialist

I have always enjoyed helping others and found the medical field interesting.  After graduating high school, I pursued my education in medical assisting and upon becoming certified, began my career.  I met Dr. Verma when I was a client of hers and immediately admired her enthusiasm for aesthetic medicine.  This relationship led to the doctor inviting me to join her practice and soon I shared Dr. Verma’s passion for the specialty. 

I take advantage of all continuing education courses available to best serve and treat our clients.  In the process, I became La Fleur’s CoolSculpting specialist.  In this role, I treat clients 1-on-1 to address their body sculpting concerns and advise them on treatment plans to achieve their goals.  I love sharing my clients’ excitement when they compare their before and after photos-it is the most rewarding part of my position!

When not at work, I enjoy hitting the gym and spending time with my family.  I believe in living a healthful, plant-based lifestyle and know that beauty glows from within.
