Hi, How Can We Help You?

Gaetana Saletta

Gaetana Saletta

Client Coordinator

    Tana served 24 years in the United States Air Force (USAF) as a Military Intelligence Officer retiring in the grade of Lieutenant Colonel.  She lived in many different countries including Turkey, Italy and South Korea and many locations in the United States including Texas, Maryland, California and Virginia.  Her work required extensive travel over the years to Germany, England, Japan, and South Korea as well as Alaska, Hawaii and various locations within the continental United States.  Following retirement from the USAF, she did similar work with a government contractor once again traveling to support a wide range of clients.

    Tana retired from that profession after moving from the Washington, DC area, and took some time off.  However, retirement just wasn’t in her nature so she reinvented herself repeatedly adding a background in retail, nanny experience to her then newborn, (now four-year-old) great niece, becoming an approved veterinary assistant, and finally moving to Bott and Associates to expand her knowledge base even more.

    Tana holds a B.S. in Psychology from Purdue University, and a Masters in Global Affairs and International Relations from St Mary’s University in San Antonio, TX.  Additionally she attended courses in Long Term Care at The George Washington University in Washington D.C.  Those courses proved invaluable when she was appointed as a legal guardian for her mother, a challenging, rewarding and sometimes heartbreaking task which lasted ten years.  Tana enjoys spending time with family, her three black cats, (two of whom have only three legs), – rescues from her time working in a specialty Cat Clinic – as well as reading, cooking, birdwatching and spending time outdoors.
