Tanya graduated from Philadelphia University with a BS of Marketing and Management in 2009.
While in school, Tanya worked at the Rittenhouse Spa & Salon before moving on to Jean Madeline Aveda Institute, becoming familiar with the cosmetology industry. Her husband, Mike, opened Barber on 24th in the fall of 2007.
After beginning a family together in 2011, Tanya decided not to return to the work force but to assist Mike and open a second barber shop, BURKE & PAYNE Barber Co. Together, Tanya and Mike own and operate both barber shops and are having great success!
