Tara Tomcsik (BA, speech comm., 2008) has always been a hands on person in the communication field. She started off in music and theatre. "I sang my way through most of my life and was able to live in various locations around the world," Tomcsik said. "I lived in Alaska, Hawaii, California, New York City, on an Amish Farm in Indiana, Greece, Switzerland, the Netherlands and of course Michigan." She's been on stage in Michigan Regional Theatres and on Broadway. She performed on ABC Daytime's All My Children and taught part time at the New York City School of Trapeze. She interned with WJBK-TV Detroit's FOX-2 news and was able to become a part of the political writing team in an election year. She's a member of Women in Communications, is director of catering sales at the Embassy Suites in Troy and lives in Northville, MI. With a combined degree in communication and peace and conflict studies, Tomcsik is a proud alumna of Wayne State.
