I could not be more thankful to have had the opportunity to have Tanya mentor me. I not only received career advice, but advice on all aspects of my life to lead to a happier and more successful life all around. Tanya used tools to figure out what my strengths were as a person and was able to use these results as a path to figure out where I should go with my career. After meeting with Tanya one time, you can see that she is unlike any other mentor and truly has a passion for helping young adults. I am forever grateful to have met Tanya and know that she will be a great part of my life for years to come.
I began the Ladies in CRE mentorship process unsure of what to expect. I came out on the other side with a clear understanding of my strengths, the career path I wanted, and even a new, amazing job! Tanya has a true gift for mentoring and has made a huge positive impact in my life.
