Tanya’s MEGA event project portfolio puts her into extreme project manager bucket. That means that the MEGA projects she has in her portfolio all share similar characteristics, including, but not limited to; uncertainty, spontaneous change and a constant state of chaos. Her reputation for excellence was built on the challenges of project execution. The rhythm of execution is so innate to her that she was able to develop the entire Look of the Games delivery schedule for the Vancouver 2010 Olympics without visiting one venue. That’s right, she did it blind. Her knowledge of the event, the sports, the program and the obstacles gave her home court advantage.
She is equally skilled in negotiation and communication, both of which provide a great conduit for building high performance teams. Tanya has a keen ability for keeping a balance between team members while motivating them to be creative, push hard, and go beyond their own perceived limits. Tanya is a believer, she loves to see people achieve, and if you are looking for encouragement or a place to find your fire, she is the kind of sounding board you can trust.
Personally, Tanya is a StepMom, or S’Mom as her kids call her, wife, pet owner and animal lover. She has a very eclectic group of friends who, she believes, helps widen her world to other ideas, approaches, and perspectives. She is a collector of sorts, of mostly mementos or tchotchkes, with a particular love for the odd, the unique, or the unlike anything else.
