About Tanya


Bio

Helping people to identify, pursue and reach their career dreams is my passion.

I love talking with people about who they are and what's important to them as it relates to their career and educational goals. And how to put together personalized strategies that will work best for them (and not someone else!). Sometimes we may have an idea of what we'd like to do, but may feel challenged (or even a little intimated) about how to get there (or wonder if its the "best fit" or "right"...

Helping people to identify, pursue and reach their career dreams is my passion.

I love talking with people about who they are and what's important to them as it relates to their career and educational goals. And how to put together personalized strategies that will work best for them (and not someone else!). Sometimes we may have an idea of what we'd like to do, but may feel challenged (or even a little intimated) about how to get there (or wonder if its the "best fit" or "right" direction), and sometimes, we are not sure what we want to do!

Whether you are exploring the options, or narrowing in on your goals, I would like to help make the career/major/college process easier, more time effective, and to provide options, encouragement and solutions in a personalized, friendly, non-judgmental, and data-informed manner so that you can get where you'd like to go (even if you're not sure where that is yet!).

Ultimately, we are all looking for fulfilling, rewarding, meaningful work that lifts us up and makes our lives better. Getting some outside insight and help along the way can really make a difference!

Amazing

Tanya goes over and above to help my son with transferring into Temple. We have been working with Tayna since Dec. She checks in with my son to makes sure that he is doing everything he needs to do to get into Temple. She is very thorough. We can't thank her enough.
