A California native who was born and raised in the Bay Area, Tanisha is devoted to her family and a successful business owner. She has more than 20 years’ experience working in the field of Human Resources and product marketing in Silicon Valley. Boasting a Master's Degree in Human Resources and a Bachelor’s degree in Business with an emphasis in Marketing, Tanisha is truly committed to maximizing her potential in her field.
Outside of her career, Tanisha has many noteworthy hobbies and interests: she's an aspiring actress who enjoys a challenging role, a world traveler who loves observing and interacting with other cultures, a public speaker, and she possesses a general passion for life and helping people, which is visibly apparent through her enthusiasm and work ethic. These interests have taught Tanisha how to be creative, open-minded, understanding, and resourceful, which have benefited her in both her personal and professional life.
Currently the reigning Mrs. California Petite, she envisions using this platform to expand her volunteering efforts even further across the state of California. She has started a 501c3 with her oldest daughter to increase awareness about assistance programs that are offered in comminutes across the country.
Tanisha also regularly volunteers with charitable organizations that focus on youth and adult wellbeing. She has done public speaking to discuss continuing education, leadership skills, and health and wellness with an overall goal to help others maximize their full potential.
Tanisha isn't afraid to speak candidly on her life experiences, now able to reflect with subtle humor on the events that have molded her into the woman she is today. Having experienced being a single mother for several years, she learned about sacrifice and self-motivation.
Growing up she was taught “where there’s a will, there’s a way”, and that was one of her drivers to push past hurdles and succeed. She shares her story in hopes to inspire others to not allow their circumstances to inhibit their life’s purpose.
