HR Experience - Tania started out in 1991 as a Human Resources Assistant at The Game/Russell Corporation until July 31, 1997, due to the plant closing.

Advice you want to share with other HR professionals: "Make sure you are up to date with polices and if you don’t know something, let the employee or applicant know you will find out.“
My Super Power - Perseverance! Never give up on something you believe in. I envisioned I would have my SHRM-CP and after several attempts at 190 out of 200, I finally earned it and now working on earning my SHRM-SCP.
Other cool things about Tania - I also told myself that I’m a runner and have ran one or two 5K races a month since September and ran my first Snicker’s half-marathon on March 5th and my first 8K on April 9th and my second half-marathon will be May 28th. Always remember, anything is possible if you believe in yourself.
