Bila je savetnik za odnose s javnošću u republičkom Višem trgovinskom sudu, te novinar u dnevnim visokotiražnim listovima.

Posebne preporuke Tanja je tada dobila i od poverenika Rodoljuba Šabića.
Nagradu Društva Srbije za odnose s javnošću (“PRiZNANJE“) za kriznu komunikaciju dobila je kao vođa tima u kompaniji u kojoj je vodila Sektor korporativnih komunikacija, a kao jedna od 50 najvažnijih ličnosti u oblasti digitalne televizije našla se na listi EURO 50 u izdanju internacionalnog “Digital TV Europe” magazina.

Od početka 2013. godine radi u kompaniji Microsoft, a od 2017. vodi tim za komunikacije u Multi-country Europe regionu Centralno-istočne Evrope koji čini 15 zemalja.

Autor je udžbenika o fašističkoj radio propagandi “Musolinijev mikrofon“, a njena životna priča poslužila je i kao osnov za lik u jednom popularnom romanu.
