"Insight truly reflects the values of hope and inspiration that I believe are required to heal and to improve one’s quality of life.”
Tanja has met all the standards for qualification and certification by the Academy of Certified Social Workers. Tanja discovered her passion for social work at age 15 when she volunteered through her youth group at hospitals, homeless shelters, and soup kitchens. Tanja started her career working with the developmentally disabled.
