Tara FitzPatrick

Safe Routes to School Coordinator, Greater Richmond Fit4Kids


Born and raised in New Jersey, Tara moved to Virginia to pursue two degrees from Mary Washington, a B.A. in Geography, and an M.Ed. in Secondary Education. She appreciates Richmond’s awesome music scene, and volunteers at her local art gallery and music venue. As a pedestrian and person who bikes in the city, Tara strives to encourage others to join in the fun, while advocating for the infrastructure necessary to make the journey safer. She currently transports her kids to daycare and preschool by foot or bike on most days, and is excited that her older son is sharing her love of two-wheeled commuting. Tara also loves to garden, and her Jersey roots always get her excited about tomato season. Homegrown tomatoes make the best sauce for pizza on the grill!
