Director of Western NC Partnerships & Faculty

Tanya Blackford

Tanya has been fortunate enough to have spent the last 25 years helping to bring opportunities, hope, and services to adults and children with over 20 years of experience in leadership roles focused on domestic violence, sexual assault, and child abuse. It has all been about hope and healing for those most in need. Tanya’s drive is about the opportunity: the opportunity to heal, overcome, become, change, be better, and achieve. Tanya uses her personal and professional experiences to support others to begin to embed new and creative ways to embody this work throughout their systems. Tanya is a licensed social worker (LCSW) and holds graduate degrees in Social Work and Public Administration.
