Tanya became a domestic violence advocate, doing speaking engagements and training that would inform people about the horror of abuse at home. Adding to her repertoire, ten years after the loss of Nicole, Tanya suffered a mental breakdown; and as a result, she has made a personal commitment to speak on the issues of how to overcome adversity and promote HEALTHY mental health for overall wellbeing. She has become a nationally recognized author, speaker and life coach who uses the lessons from her experience with Nicole and her own suicide attempt to help others cope with life’s challenges.
