Tanya is proud to be the first Respiratory Therapist to join the Learning Institute, and has been in the new role of Interprofessional Educator since November 2020. Tanya graduated from Dalhousie University in 1992 and continued her studies, becoming a Registered Respiratory Therapist in 1994. Tanya has worked in various roles locally and internationally over the course of her career.
While patient care is her first love, she has developed a passion for education and pursued a Respiratory Educator certification after completing two RESPTREC courses in Asthma and COPD. She transitioned to skills and simulation learning in 2015, and is energized to bring her simulation knowledge and experience through an RRT lens forth in her role at the Learning Institute.
In her spare time you can find Tanya lakeside with her friends and family, including her two Goldendoodles, in her garden, or on the softball field.
