Human Resources Manager

Tanya joined the Lifeline team in January 2018 as our Human Resources Manager. She takes care of our people! She’s originally from New Orleans, LA. She grew up a dancer and is still known to bust out in a dance party while cooking dinner. She attends school at Samford University where she will receive a degree in Youth Studies. For fun, Tanya enjoys sewing, hiking, and spending time with her family. She’s a big fan of Asian and Mexican food. Her favorite place to travel is Maine but is also down to go to the beach. She has been married to her husband, Ryan, for 20 years. Originally from the Gulf Coast, they’ve lived in Birmingham for most of their marriage. Ryan is a teacher at a local high school. They have four children: Hope, Jack, Tai, and Emma. They love to be outdoors and finding new places to hike and explore. Her three simple joys are her faith, her family, and a hot cup of tea! Tanya loves our core mission of taking care of vulnerable kids and getting to do that with others that are just as passionate as she is.
