Tara Smith, the Two Generation Program Coordinator for the Office of Governor John Hickenlooper, is helping coordinate and expand the statewide adoption of 2Gen approaches in Colorado. Through the Parents and Children Thriving Together (PACTT) Two Generation State Policy Network initiative, she is working with representatives from state and local government and other partners to embed 2Gen across programs, policies, organizations, and systems to ensure Colorado parents and children are valued, healthy, and thriving. Prior to joining the Governor’s Office, Ms. Smith was actively involved in efforts to reform the state’s health care system. She most recently served as the Strategy and Policy Manager for the Colorado State Innovation Model (SIM), a 4-year, $65 million initiative aimed at transforming health care delivery and payment structures through the integration of physical and behavioral health. Before joining SIM, she worked to improve Coloradans access to health care, assisting with the implementation of the ACA’s health insurance marketplace reforms as a Rate Analyst at the Colorado Division of Insurance. Ms. Smith received an MA in Medical Anthropology from the University of Colorado-Denver, and a BS in International Politics with a concentration in Science and Technology in International Affairs from Georgetown University.
