Tanya’s love for nutrition grew from a passion for food and cooking, alongside a desire to help her family manage their diabetes diagnoses. Additionally, after learning that black and brown women are disproportionately at risk for adverse birth outcomes, she felt called to support BIPOC individuals in their pre/postnatal nutrition journeys. Whether working with patients to manage diabetes or promote a healthy pregnancy, Tanya loves helping diverse individuals incorporate familiar foods into their nutrition plans. Her motto? You do not have to give up your traditional foods to eat a balanced diet! Before joining the Culina Health team, Tanya worked as an inpatient dietitian at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Institute. She also has experience as a chef, web designer, and conference organizer.
Patient-centered, gentle nutrition with an emphasis on weight inclusivity. Tanya is all about collaboration–her goal is to work with her patients to create nutrition plans that feel true to them.
In her spare time, Tanya enjoys checking out new restaurants, listening to live music, and going out dancing.
