Tanner graduated from Stonehill College in 2019 with degrees in Criminology and Psychology. He began his career working for the Essex County District Attorney’s Office as a Diversion Coordinator, helping both juvenile and substance-dependent offenders participate and complete diversion programs as an alternative to prosecution. He then transitioned to the Domestic-Violence Unit as a Victim-Witness Advocate, aiding in the prosecution of criminal cases by providing support to victims, witnesses, and their families to help them understand the court process.

After the District Attorney’s Office, Tanner worked in Insurance Claims and Background Investigations which led him to have an interest in a career in Human Resources. In 2023, he joined the Communitas Team as a Human Resources Associate.

As an HR Associate, Tanner’s responsibilities place a high focus on employee onboarding, as well as employee satisfaction and appreciation efforts.

He is also the proud father of a lively and fluffy Golden Retriever named Jango.
