Tanner works in public affairs for SSM Health. He builds relationships with business, government and nonprofit leaders to assist SSM in creating civic and community presences in St. Charles County for St. Joseph Health Center in St. Charles, MO; St. Joseph Hospital West in Lake St. Louis, MO; and also for the communities around St. Clare Health Center in Fenton, MO.
Tanner first became aware of Missouri Kids at the 2015 benefit auction. What stuck out most for him was the fact that board members developed relationships with those they were helping. Tanner stayed in touch with Gary Shaw after the auction where he inquired more about the organization and the board. He officially joined in November 2015.
Tanner spends his personal time playing golf and fly fishing.
