She was the owner of Unlimited Bookkeeping Services and worked as a bookkeeper for Roof Repairs Corp. and Power of Recovery. Her passion was yoga.

She was a strong advocate for people in recovery. Tina’s beauty and strength were her biggest assets and she used her personal experiences to help people through their darkest days. She touched countless amounts of lives. Her infectious grin and love of life was the greatest gift she could pass on to her daughter.
