This experience inspired Tanya to make a difference in the world. After graduating from the University of Alabama with a double major in Biology and Marine Biology, Tanya earned her law degree in 2002 from Cumberland Law School in Birmingham, AL.

Upon graduating from law school, Tanya spent many years working in all areas of the law, however, she never forgot her dream of making a difference in the world and in 2013 moved to Costa Rica to learn Spanish, where she spent hundreds of hours immersed in language and culture. In 2015, he returned to the United States to begin working with the immigrant population, one of the most marginalized and discriminated against the populations of this country.
