A valley native, Tanya was born to teen parents, and is the granddaughter of Mexican immigrants. She grew up in a working class family that often struggled, but despite the challenges she learned the importance of faith, family, hard work, and personal responsibility.

Driven by the desire to create a better life for herself, Tanya worked from the time she was fourteen. She earned an academic scholarship to put herself through Arizona State University, becoming the first person in her family to graduate from college. She went on to graduate from ASU Law with distinction earning a job at one of the nation’s top law firms.

As a lawyer, business association CEO, sports executive with the Phoenix Suns, small business owner, and community advocate she understands the impact that policy can have on our lives.

Good policy can give us the opportunity to blaze our own trails. Bad policy can crush the American spirit with government-knows-best bureaucracy. That’s why Tanya has fought for smaller government and to lower taxes and regulation on small businesses.

Now, Tanya is ready to bring her experience and thoughtful leadership to Congress. A proud Republican, she believes in the promise of the American dream and will fight to preserve it. She will embrace policies that empower people, not the government. And, she will always put Arizona first.

Tanya lives in Tempe with her husband Steve, an attorney and former F-16 pilot in the U.S. Air Force. They have three wonderful children and two dogs who keep them on their toes. When they aren’t hiking or exploring new places you can find them at grandma’s enjoying dinner and playing dominoes.
