Tanya Smith-Evans

Senior Consultant

Smith-EvansWhat inspires me: Working with organizations that are continuously striving to positively impact their communities and their constituents’ lives.

What I am most proud of:  My American soldier husband who serves the country and our three wonderfully exhausting “little troopers” who serve to run he and I ragged!

I think the world would be better if:  Self-doubt didn’t exist.
