Tania is an Australian that moved to Salt Lake City to complete an MBA at the University of Utah and now works as an analyst at eBay. In the time that she has lived here, Tania has learned from others that despite her many achievements in life, her greatest achievement is surviving in a country where ‘everything is trying to kill you.’ Did you know that there are also fish and octopus that can kill you in the land Down Under, not just land animals?! Tania loves the outdoors, especially camping, hiking, and rafting, making Utah a great fit, but she definitely misses the beach and her pet kangaroo.
As an athlete, Tania has played many sports including, BMX, soccer, tennis and Australian Rules football. Last season Tania ruptured her achilles during tryouts but continued with the team in a support staff capacity – she could be seen on the sideline keeping stats, retrieving lost mouth guards and wearing her favorite pair of board shorts (she still dreams of being a professional surfer one day and working at the World Surf League). Tania is excited to get to play football with her Falconz teammates this season!
