With over 27 years serving seniors, Tawnya has been fortunate to work in every department of senior housing. From Housekeeper to Executive Director, she has experienced it all. She earned her Assisted Living Managers license in 2010. Currently, she serves on the following committees: Memory Care Alliance for AZALFA and the C.N.A. Board for EVIT. She is a Paul Harris Rotarian and an Arizona Leading Age Fellow.
Due to the caregiver shortage, Tawnya has also chosen to be an Adult Education Instructor with EVIT, East Valley Institute of Technology teaching Caregiving Classes.

She is a Certified Dementia Care Manager utilizing her Assisted Living License at Reflections at Fellowship Square-Mesa, a memory care community focused on Resident Directed Care. There is nothing more important to Tawnya than building relationships and empowering those around her.
I love living in a community where my friends appreciate my sense of humor: 10,000 Swedes came thru the weeds chased by one Norwegian. The dust from the weeds and sweat from the Swedes made snuff for the one Norwegian.
I enjoy riding the bus to and from medical appointments. I don't have to think about where to go or park my car. And I love the drivers, they are so patient and kind.
I am so happy that I am living at Fellowship Square. The food is wonderful and I can play bridge whenever I want.
