New Hampshire’s newspaper, The Union Leader, has inducted two Saint Anselm College alumni to its 2023 class of 40 Under Forty, a program that honors 40 New Hampshire natives under the age of 40 for their dedication to the betterment of the community. Courtney Gray Tanner ’11  and Tiffany Haynes ‘07, MSN, RN, were the two alumni featured in this year’s class. 

“Congratulations to Courtney and Tiffany on joining the growing list of Saint Anselm alumni to receive this prestigious honor,” said Joseph Emmons ’04, assistant vice president of alumni relations and engagement. “We are so proud of you for continuing the Anselmian tradition of supporting and bettering the communities where we all live and work!”

Courtney Gray Tanner ‘11 earned her bachelor’s in Classics and in Business Management at the college and went on to earn her juris doctorate and master’s in social work at University of New Hampshire. She is now the director of government relations at Dartmouth Health and an adjunct professor of social work at Colby Sawyer College. Recently, Tanner secured $1.5 million in federal funding for Families Flourish, “a nonprofit that is aimed to establish a residential treatment program for pregnant and parenting women working toward recovery.” She is the board chair for Families Flourish and is a board member for New Hampshire Humanities. Tanner believes that the best career advice she has ever received was, “Be curious. Listen and then ask questions. Keep learning.”

Tiffany Haynes ’07, MSN, RN earned her bachelor of science in nursing at the college and is now the president and CEO of North Country Home Health and Hospice. After her time at Saint Anselm, Haynes went onto to earn her MS in Nursing with a concentration in Healthcare System Leadership at Norwich University. Haynes has been focused on making healthcare more accessible for everyone, as New Hampshire is a state with no formal public transportation. As a result, her and her team developed an in-home palliative care program in 2019 that has expanded since. “Never stop learning. You will not regret investing in your education and obtaining certifications in your area of practice,” says Haynes.
