Tanya Simon – Builders Express Lynnwood
Where to start. This SANA journey has been as much part of a personal journey as what it has been one of service. When we asked her to get involved it meant stepping out from the shadows and taking a step into the limelight which was not in her nature. Fate has seen her stepping in to continue a story that she did not start but certainly made her own and her own legacy. Her strength and determination to do what’s right and expectation of those around her to step up has made her a role model to many. As part of the GCA Competition committee she helped develop the foundation of the home store evaluation form. Serving as GCA National Chairperson brought her to the EXCO as the first home store member to hold this position. Getting into the LIAG committee was part of a full circle journey that she took on with tenacity. Her SANA career culminated in being elected as Vice President Marketing. The Merit Award for 2019 goes to a trail blazer and someone we are proud to be associated with – Tanya Simon
