She wants the library to be a safe and happy space for all of the students at Ignite. Tawny has been married for 21 years and they have 3 wonderful children together, Kolby, Riley and Lily. Her greatest joy is being a wife and mother. She loves to travel (Oregon is her favorite place). She grew up doing theater and goes to as many shows as she can.
