Tara Dowd is a mother of three who chose to use her professional talents to help parents eliminate the social awkwardness of nose picking with their children. Tara has a degree in Marketing and a Masters Degree in Clinical Nutrition and used her past publishing and teaching experiences to develop "No More Boogers". As the parent of a special needs child, Tara relied on social stories to communicate social situations to her non-verbal child with autism. When her autistic son, along with her 2 year old daughter, responded well to the hand written story about boogers, she knew it needed to be shared with others. Collaborating with the talents of John Stokes, tattoo artist, and owner of Stone Crow Studio LLC and Jill Levins, graphic designer, "No More Boogers" was born.
