Meet Two Sisters, Moms & Entrepreneurs: Tara and Mandi

Meet Two Sisters, Moms & Entrepreneurs: Tara and Mandi

Meet Two Sisters – Two Moms & Entrepreneurs! Tara Croft Baker and Mandi Croft Petoskey are business owners, moms, sisters, and it goes without saying, best friends. And they do everything together, from running marathons, to raising their kids, to planning trips to the dog park. And in between meetings and carpools, they talk on the phone at least twice a day. They grew up in Lincolnshire and went to Stevenson High School!
Tara owns her law firm, Trust – Estate Planning for New Families, which provides wills, trusts, and other estate planning services to young families (www.estateplanningfornewfamilies.com) ; Mandi’s practice, Neuro Educational Specialists, is a team of school and clinical psychologists who partner with families and school districts to provide comprehensive neuropsychological and psychoeducational evaluations for children (www.neuroeds.com).
And they run their practices while raising their kids to be more like siblings than cousins. Tara’s kids are 11, 9, 6 and 6 and Mandi’s daughter is 2 – and, of course, they each have a dog. Needless to say, family get-togethers are not quiet!
This entrepreneurial crew is anything but boring and these sisters provide essential services to our communities.
