Taja struggled with childhood depression but this did not stop her from wanting to excel in life. In fact, it only encouraged her to receive the highest degree possible and obtained a Doctorate in Marriage and Family Therapy. This degree did not come easy for her. She faced many rejections prior to getting accepted into Eastern's program all the while raising a 2-year-old son and running multiple businesses.
Dr. Taja is resilient, creative and empathetic and her mantra to get her through school was “You didn’t get this far to not make it through.” Her story empowers me to not settle for less and I hope it inspires you to dream big because ANYONE can achieve their dreams!
