Do you know those women who just seem to get more done than the rest of us? Who seem to maybe have an extra 3 or 4 hours each day to tick things off on their lists? Who we maybe joke about being "bloody over-achievers" and yet look at with total awe.
This blog is about those amazing women who we want to be when we grow up.
This is Tanya Taylor. Mum of three - 15 year old Ava, 12 year old Bligh and 10 year old Daniel. She's been married to Mark for 17 years and quite literally never sits still.
I first met Tan as a new parent at Willoughby Public School and quickly came to realise she was a force to be reckoned with. Tanya took the helm at our school and rallied the troops for many years of fundraising, including our spectacular year of festivities celebrating the school's 150th birthday, including a landmark fete day and fabulous cocktail function at Norths.
With husband Mark, Tan has worked tirelessly with their son Daniel, who was born with cerebral palsy, to create a better future for him and in the process, raised awareness of CP in her local community as well as thousands of dollars of funds for the CP Alliance.
Tanya has also hosted many a Girls Night In, raising funds for cancer (and putting on a hell of a fun event) AND manages to get to book group, walk her dog and maintain some solid long-term friendships.
Let's not forget that Tanya has a real job, runs the local scouts program and in just over a month (because she had some free time after doing Coastrek in April) will be competing in Dancing with the Stars at Norths, raising money for the Cancer Council. That's right: Tanya will be dancing. The tango. On stage. Respect!
She's an awesome role model for her teen daughters, a fierce advocate for Daniel and a pretty damn good wife to Mark too!
Here's her link to raise funds - help out a great chick for a great cause. Good luck Tan - we'll all be with you - in our seats, drinking bubbles, looking on with awe:
