Latanya dedicated most of her professional career to being a customer service representative. She was a call center agent for Coach. She also started her own business called AD&D Technologies; which represented her love for her three grandchildren: Averie, DaShaun and DaJuan.
At an early age, Tanya developed her own bond with the Lord and gave her life to Christ. She always had an uplifting song in her heart no matter the situation. She was a straight shooter and no chaser. She was very outspoken and would tell it like it is! Tanya was not afraid to express herself! Her contagious smile and captivating eyes could pick anybody up on a bad day. Those traits were the pillars of her beauty. As we called her SEXY! She was that and so much more!
