About Tara Whittle:

tara photo.jpg

 Tara Whittle got started on trivia at an early age thanks to her dad making up questions to occupy everyone on long family trips. Since then, she has played everything from countless games of Trivial Pursuit to pub trivia across the Capital Region and the country—and even abroad. She has been on regional championship-winning teams, competes in the invitation-only LearnedLeague, and helped lead her team to a 2nd place finish out of 232 teams from across the US in 2018’s Geek Bowl XII: America’s Biggest Trivia Night. She regularly hosts pub trivia at Bacchus Wood-Fired Pizza in Troy and appeared as a contestant on Jeopardy! in June 2015.

When she isn’t playing, writing, or hosting trivia, she’s probably talking about Alabama football or on the ice at the Albany Curling Club. By day she serves clients as VP of Strategy and a co-owner of The Kaleel Jamison Consulting Group, a management consulting firm based in Troy.
