Tanya Kensington

As a Senior Consultant with Optimum Talent, Tanya has over 20 years of experience as an HR professional, with deep experience in all aspects of the function. Her pragmatic, customer-focused, down to earth style has been highly effective in partnering with a wide variety of leadership styles to create strong, healthy & productive working environments and leadership teams.  She brings a wealth of HR knowledge both strategically and operationally but is most passionate about coaching individuals through the challenge, transition, and to their potential.

Her disarming, open style, coupled with compassionate candour and a little good humour has been key in creating trusting relationships and supporting individuals in their success.  Working primarily in Vancouver’s high tech sector she is well versed and experienced in the dynamics of high growth organizations (recruiting, interviewing, evaluating talent) and reorganization (releases, transitions, redeployment.).

When she’s not working, she’s busy with her family of three active kids, a fuzzy dog and an entrepreneur husband. She loves to travel and has experienced living overseas in both Australia and the UK.

Tanya holds a BA from the University of Victoria, Human Resources Management Certificate from BCIT, and is a Certified Executive Coach through Royal Roads University. As an Associate Certified Coach in good standing with the International Coaching Federation, she is ready and excited to partner with you on your career journey.
