Tanya McKinney, BS MOL
Director of Community Initiatives and Major Projects
Tanya has been with DAC since Fall of 2018. She and her husband Terrell have two beautiful girls who have stolen the hearts of the whole team - especially during COVID, since we are all deprived of human connection! Tanya is our Director of Community Initiatives. In this role, Tanya gathers and assembles demographic and societal statistics to prioritize funding and programmatic goals. Her work drives DAC’s community change initiatives that align with our most pertinent mental health and substance use concerns. This work also ensures the outcomes we are seeking are effective and impactful. Tanya coordinates with our state partners to communicate our work in a way that helps them to understand the status of our community’s needs and successes.
