Meet Tani, one of Legacy Tree Genealogists talented project managers!
Tani began her love affair with genealogy as a young girl at sleep-overs with her maternal grandmother when together they would compile family history books. Later visiting the Family History Library with her mother and grandmother simply fanned the genealogy flame in her young heart. Both of these amazing women spent many of their final days and hours fully engaged in compiling records with sources and stories to pass on to their family. It wasn’t until they were gone that Tani really began to treasure the books they had worked on together. She had heard the stories, and learned of the brick walls, but now wanted to learn more! What happened to her great grandfather that served in the war and was injured and sent home to recover? Did he return to battle? Did he go AWOL? What started as a curiosity for her, with no genealogy experience, bloomed into a passion and a drive to learn how to discover more and to pass these treasures on to her own posterity! The circle of life continues!
Tani went on to share her excitement with others, who also had a desire to learn more but didn’t know how nor where to begin! Tani has worked with hundreds of people instructing and teaching Family History skills, providing encouragement, creating interest and enthusiasm as they pursued their own family story. Everyone has a story!
Earning a degree in Humanities, then a Bachelor’s degree in Travel & Tourism from Brigham Young University initiated her interest and love of people which has flourished ever since. Her favorite thing about touring is to observe, meet and speak with people of different countries, cultures, religions to discover their traditions, passions and their family stories!
Tani brings decades of customer relations experience to Legacy Tree, including compassion and empathy for people dealing with difficult circumstances. Tani knows our family trees are not always perfect little packages nor what we may expect them to be. But that’s what makes it so exciting! One of Tani’s strengths is allowing herself and others to be human, and believes our family members and our ancestors deserve that same privilege.
Tani enjoys being in nature either skiing, scuba diving, biking, hiking in the mountains or strolling on the beaches! Touring, photography, good food and time spent with friends and family bring her joy! Tani loves her three amazing daughters, their awesome husbands and simply adores her grandchildren! Family is her life and greatest blessing!
Tani is very excited and grateful for the opportunity to join Legacy Tree and turn her love for genealogy into a career! She looks forward to helping you as your Project Manager have an excellent experience with Legacy Tree Genealogists as you discover more of your own unique story!
