Come meet & greet with the 2018 Ms. Woman North Carolina United States Tanya Topazio! 

Tanya Topazio landed in North Carolina in 2005 via Connecticut, Los Angeles & Louisiana. She studied Television and Film Production at Emerson College in Boston, and proceeded to work in production in Los Angeles, New York and throughout New England.  Tired of chasing the freelance gigs, she ended up teaching television production to high school students.  After digging her car out of the snow one April day in 2005, she decided sunny skies were in order and settled on the beautiful shores of Lake Norman.  She continues to teach at both the high school and college levels, owns a small business, is an actress, and has a hard time saying “no” to more.  Let’s just say binging Netflix is now a luxury that seemingly only occurs each morning at the gym (thank you wifi!).

Surrounded by a tribe of boss babes, Tanya continually strives to be a better person.  She believes that although a career is important, family, friends and community are what make life worth living.  She is passionate about spreading awareness of Congenital Heart Defects, as CHDs have affected her brother, cousin and two nephews.  Her platform, Heels for Hearts, promotes local and national foundations that support children living with complex congenital heart defects. 

Tanya is excited to appear at this year's Beer, Bourbon & Barbeque event in Charlotte.  She may seem familiar to many of our repeat customers, as she has been the face of Jim Beam at this event for the past 10 years.
