Grant Prospect Researcher
Tanya began her career as a social worker in behavioral healthcare providing case management and counseling in a variety of modalities, from working with inpatient pregnant and post-partum women with substance use disorder, to outpatient opioid replacement therapy. Following her direct service, she gained experience as a project manager for a four-county initiative mitigating the opioid epidemic in North Central Washington. Her substantial tenure as a regional, direct service advocate built the critical scaffolding Tanya needed to strive toward a more equitable and holistically healthy Washington. Ultimately, her experiences have led Tanya to find her place in the philanthropic landscape, first as a grants manager and then grant writer. The land of grants is somewhere she unequivocally calls home.
