Tanya graduated from the Canadian College of Acupuncture & Oriental Medicine in Victoria BC in 2004 and is registered a Acupuncturist & Traditional Chinese Medicine Practitioner with the CTCMPAO in Ontario. Constantly learning, Tanya is looking forward to deepening her study of reproductive medicine with Randine Lewis, author of the Infertility Cure.

Tanya is a certified Birth Doula, and while not currently practicing, her experience of supporting women and couples at over 40 labor and deliveries gives her a special perspective in the care of pregnant and postpartum clients. It is one of her greatest joys to see a fertility client holding their new baby in their arms, having supported them through that journey!

Tanya has lectured at the Canadian College of Naturopathic Medicine, at Ryerson University for the Midwifery Education Program and at the Breech Birth Conference in Ottawa. Her perspectives have also been featured on City TV’s Breakfast Television, FLARE magazine, the Women’s Post and numerous local newsletters of valued colleagues.

In May 2011, Tanya hosted Dr. Paul Magarelli, a Reproductive Endocrinologist from Colorado who spoke about the significant improvements he has seen in his fertility practice from combining Acupuncture and IVF.
