However, she truly found her voice and space as a vegan influencer in late 2017.

Her Rise as a Vegan Influencer

Tabitha suffered from chronic pain, which had prevented her from pursuing a career in acting. However, in 2017, she started Uber driving as funds in her disability insurance coverage were running out. She could not rely on her side-acting gigs to make ends meet.

Around the same time, she turned vegan to help manage the chronic pain and fatigue condition, on the advice of her daughter. She started sharing her experience as a vegan on her socials and, in the process, broke into the world of social media influencers.
