Meet the Coaches: Tanya Battista

Tanya’s background is in finance and operations for non-profits and small businesses in the US and abroad both as an owner and employee. She has worked diligently so that the organizations remain fiscally solvent and comply with all government regulations. She has expanded her knowledge into personal financial products and opportunities to help clients plan and achieve their financial goals.

Tanya says, “The key to coaching is to help clients identify their own goals and to help them determine the best plan for their situation to achieve those goals. There is not one path to reach goals, so coaching is a partnership to explore all options and then to develop the best steps to allow clients to achieve their dreams.  It is a great opportunity to see that dreams are possible.” She studied International Relations and Spanish at the University of Minnesota; and Business Administration at the University of St. Thomas.

Tanya partners with clients to assist with debt, credit, savings, budgeting, and spending wisely.  She provides clients with financial knowledge and referrals, such as buying a house, obtaining business loans, and saving for college, among other recommendations.  As a Financial Coach at the International Institute of Minnesota, Tanya helps New Americans achieve self-sufficiency and full membership in American life.
