Like many of the Cobalteers, Tanya’s diverse education and professional background have culminated in a unique perspective and unusual collection of skills. While it’s her recent degree in business management that makes her an excellent office manager and business development researcher, her first degree in psychology is surely what prepared her to support the cast of characters at Cobalt. Tanya’s love of books and learning has yielded an expansive knowledge base that we are still trying to inventory. Her professional résumé reflects her love of science and nature and includes being a trail and fly-fishing guide for the Shenandoah National Park, a carpenter, and a project manager for residential contractors. It was through these experiences that she learned that life rarely goes according to plan, and you have to be ready to change course to reach your destination.
