Tanya began her career in senior living after a successful career in magazine publishing. She felt that she didn’t want to always be in the “books,” she enjoyed working with people much more than just sitting behind a desk. Tanya wanted to work in an industry where she felt like she could “make a difference” in someone’s life. Tanya says it was a blessing when her new career began in the senior industry because it wasn’t long after that her father had a stroke and their family was faced with all kinds of questions. In her present position, she can most definitely relate to the family members as well as the residents.
