Tena believes in life long learning and is currently enrolled in an MBA program focusing on sustainable business and accounting.  Tena has had the attitude and determination to complete three associates degrees and two bachelors degrees.  Tena is also studying to become an Enrolled Agent and expects to complete her studies in late August, which would ensure she would have her license for the 2011 tax year.

Tena is always up to trying new things. The combination of a love for life long learning and being 'up to a challenge' make her the perfect person to be CEO of this company.  TLC Business Solutions is all about helping people face challenges and win!

The desire to help others is what motivates Tena. When TLC Business Solutions was opened in early 2000, Tena's motivation was to provide help to business owners by troubleshooting problems, streamlining processes, and coming up with other innovative ideas to help others succeed.

In July of 2012, TLC Business Solutions, LLC. was formed in the state of Oregon (subsidiary of Innovative Strategic Business Solutions, Inc. of Oregon) to provide bookkeeping, payroll and consulting services. Tena decided in light of the financial disaster, others would be best served if she offered her knowledge and expertise to others focusing on sustainable growth for the company.
