behind the name

Addelise is inspired by Tanya's two daughters Addison & Elise. In 2016, Addison stepped onto the school bus and time stood still. It was a pivotal moment in Tanya's career to step out of the corporate world and into creating Addelise - helping other businesses thrive and grow.

Tanya here. I founded Addelise in 2016. I am humbled to have worked with some pretty amazing brands. Brands that have been recognized in Inc., Entrepreneur and Forbes. I am a girl mom x2. Addison and Elise are a constant inspiration, hence the formation of Addelise. They think it's pretty cool I named my business after them. Some fun things about me, I am a country girl, but I LOVE the City.

I was widowed at 26. That loss changed me forever. I no longer was afraid to take chances and lean into the woman I wanted to become. Working with other entrepreneurs and women owned businesses - is where I thrive as well.

I am a former VP of a software company where I traveled the world and lead their marketing and growth. They are a client of mine to this day and thats is very special to me. 

Addelise is a Certified women owned business carrying designations as a WBENC and WOSB. I also sit on the National Small Business Leadership Council. 

I love being outdoors boating, off-roading with my husband and friends, traveling to new places with my family. I am also the proud new goat momma to Ivy and Rae.
