You will often hear her say, “Conflict is Her Business.” She is the CEO of the Transformational Resolution Group, specializing in coaching individuals to work within themselves to transcend the traumatic events that have stifled their lives.
Based on her life’s experience, Tanja feels education is freedom. She has a bachelors, two masters, and a PhD. She obtained a free education when she joined the Air National Guard in college. That translated to NO college debt upon graduating University of Maryland University College, Webster University, and the University of Virginia.

She emphasizes the importance of knowing yourself and self-worth. She clearly understands that saving, living beneath her means, and having a financial advisor has helped her and her husband grow their wealth.
