Tasha Buchanan

Kid Magnet  & Keeper of the Children 

What Led Me To iGnite:

 

I was a nanny for a family of 4 children and met Kari Glandorf through the kids. Kari introduced me to Neissa and I just knew I had to be part of ignite! I gave the position a try and never turned back. Throughout my pregnancy and my son’s surgeries, iGnite has been SUCH a helpful and positive force in my life. I’m not sure what I’d do without this family!

Roots:

 

I was born in Brunswick, Maine and moved to Virginia Beach, Virginia at just 6 months old. I met my now husband in high school there and he joined the navy. The navy took us from Virginia to Saint Mary’s Georgia where we got married. 3 years later we uprooted and moved to San Diego where we hope to stay for a while! 

When I'm Not Working I'm...

 

Living it up with my husband and my son, Zander, and our 3 dogs! You can usually find me outside in our backyard or at the beach! 

 

Life-Changing Experience:

For me, was losing my grandma (I called her Nana) when I was 13 years old. It has most definitely shaped me into the person I am today. 

My Favorite Thing To Do For Fun:

 

I love to paint and I’ve been dabbling in photography! But honestly, watching my son learn something new takes the icing on the cake! 

Best Advice I've Been Given:

Always love yourself first. 

Don’t worry about

making waves by yourself, the moon does it

all the time.

Inspiration:

 

I’m most inspired by my son. He had 2 brain surgeries at 4 just months old and hasn’t let a single thing stop him from living the happiest life. No matter what obstacles he faces, he finds away to get through them.
