Tara Sherry Torres, founder of Cafe con Leche, is a Brooklyn girl who fell in love with Pittsburgh 10 years ago. She is a dynamic communicator and creative connector who believes in the power of culture and relationships.

Tara talked with us about her work with Pittsburgh’s small but growing Latino population. “The challenge for Latinos in Pittsburgh is we don’t have a historical reference,” as in other cities.

In her free time you can find Tara on a beach, sipping wine and dreaming big.

Find her on Twitter: @taralajefa and @CafeLechePGH or visit Cafe Con Leche‘s website.
