Don Tatro brings a deep appreciation of Northern Nevada, successful business knowledge and front-line experience as a community leader to his service as a Nevada State Senator representing District 16. Born and raised in Carson City, Tatro learned the importance of community service from his father, who served as a justice of the peace, and his uncle, who served as a Carson City supervisor. A 2000 graduate of Carson City High School, Tatro worked in construction and for a horse trainer before earning a bachelor's degree in business management from the University of Phoenix. After completing his degree, Tatro spent some time outside of Nevada working as a press secretary for former United States Senators John Ensign (R-NV) and Tom Coburn (R-OK). He went on to launch his own successful small business - an appraisal management company. Tatro returned to Nevada in 2015 to serve as the Executive Director of The Builders, a Reno-based organization of homebuilders. He served The Builders in a leadership capacity for 5 years. He currently works as a mortgage lender with NorthPointe Bank. Tatro's deep roots in Northern Nevada combined with his successful business background compelled him to step forward and address important community issues through volunteer service as- the former chair of Reno's Housing Task Force; a member of the Washoe County manager's advisory council and as a member and current president of the board of a local charter high school. Tatro has been recognized as Outstanding Leader Under Age 40, as a Titan of Industry and as one of the Most Influential People in Northern Nevada. Don is an active outdoorsman who loves skiing, hunting, camping and fly fishing. But nothing is more important to Don than family.
