HR Welcome Letter

Internal, 2016

Please help us welcome Tanya Barkum to M*Modal, Franklin.

We are pleased to announce that Tanya Barkum has joined M*Modal as a Great Plains administrator replacing David Winters, set to retire later this month.


Tanya earned MS Dynamics Great Plains certifications in San Ramon, CA in 2006 in the following: Financials (G/L, A/P, A/R, B/R); Distributions (Inventory, Sales Order Processing, Purchase Order Processing) and Report Writer. Other areas of expertise include Quick Books certification and MOUS.

Previously, Tanya worked in Fremont, California. She worked for Volt Technical Services as daily support of MS Dynamics GP. She was a help desk administrator and did project management for upgrades and large customization projects. Tanya was the liaison between the accounting and IT departments.


Tanya relocated from Cali for this job. “I had never even visited Tennessee before now. And from what I have seen so far, it is a very good decision. The sites are very beautiful and everyone is so very friendly,” she said.

Tanya has two daughters and eleven grandchildren! One daughter has seven children and the other has four.  Tanya says, “I have a domestic partner. Her name is Angela…my angel.”


Tanya is also a foodie and loves traveling to new and different places to experience new cultures and new foods. “As well, I love feeding the hungry. While in Cali, I directed a monthly food drive which I called “Bags of Love” and an annual Christmas dinner called 100 Hungry People.”


We are excited to welcome Tanya to M*Modal!  Please stop by her desk next to David Winters and say hello.
