About Me

Hey — Tanya here. I think we’ve got a lot in common.

I’m a mother of four mostly-grown, great kids, and a woman who has struggled, and still struggles, to keep a positive perspective and attitude in all of the challenges and trials of life. I’m a woman who is finding joy in personal growth and gratitude, and in understanding more clearly who I am, where I want to go in life, and in intentionally moving forward to get there.

I don’t know a lot of people who are where they thought they would be at this stage of their life, and I’m no exception. Getting divorced after 24 years of marriage was never in my plans, and it has changed how I look at myself and everyone around me. It has required that I reevaluate, refocus, and reestablish. My personal struggles through this challenge have taught me the importance of boundaries, compassion, and forgiveness. And I can definitely say that I am happier now than I have been for a very long time and that the path God has taken me through has prepared me to do some amazing work as a life coach.

I graduated from Brigham Young University with a BA in English and a secondary teaching certificate. After being a stay-at-home mom for 15 years I began teaching middle school, and what an amazing ride that has been! I have learned so much working with these great teenagers, probably the greatest lesson being how to love and respect the individual path of each person. Once I became a certified life coach through The John Maxwell Team, I began to understand why this lesson was so vital for me to learn.

When I discovered life coaching I felt I had found my calling. Working as a life coach with individuals as they discover who they are, where they want to go, and how they want to get there has been one of the greatest blessings and honors of my life. I highly value the idea that every person’s path is unique, and that there are things each of us individually needs to learn and grow from so we can become the person God intends for us to be. My responsibility as your life coach is not to determine your path and plan for you, but to help you discover and develop your own path and plan, and to help you learn and grow from the singular challenges and trials in your life. This is an amazing process, and I love being a part of it!

I believe, without a doubt, that God has prepared me for this work.

Together we can work miracles in your life.

Shall we get to work?
