Tara Willoughby

Business Development Coordinator

Tara earned her Bachelor of Arts degree in Psychology with a Communications minor from DePaul University in Chicago.  Over her 25+ year career, her psychology-focused work included supporting adults and children in group home, school, clinic, and home settings.  Her area of involvement was mental illness (ADHD, ADD, major depression, manic depression, schizophrenia, pervasive developmental disorder, mental retardation, autism), neurodegenerative (Huntington’s disease), autoimmune (scleroderma, Gray’s disease, and others), and behavior disorders (self-injury, lead poisoning of the brain, eating disorders).  Tara also brings extensive project management background to Modus Outcomes, with experience both in support and executive positions.

Tara has worked in business development throughout her career.  She has been of service to her team by coordinating them to meet client’s requests in terms of RFP submissions, timelines, and by building strong relationships with clients.  At Modus Outcomes, Tara acts as the central point of contact for the Modus Outcomes division of THREAD Research (focusing mainly on North America and Europe), working to ensure that our clients are connected with the team that can best address their patient-centric measurement needs. She is at the crux of the Modus Outcomes-focused business development team as she monitors the proposal process, builds meaningful relationships internally and externally, and steers the business development processes in its entirety.
