Tanya is an attorney and certified Spanish court interpreter in Northern California.  Born and raised in Healdsburg, CA, but also lived in Mexico City during the first years of her life. Her father was tragically killed when she was 5 years old, and this experience of losing a parent at such a young age inspired her lifelong pursuit for justice; She has always known that she would advocate for vulnerable people and communities.

When she not in court or volunteering for one of her favorite nonprofits (there are many) she is either hanging with her nephew, most likely eating ice cream and baking cookies or at a gym trying to burn off the sweets. 😉
