Hello everyone, my name is Tanya and I’m so excited to meet everyone! I lived in the delightfully rainy Pacific Northwest for most of my life - grew up in a tiny town in Southwest Washington, went to University of Washington in Seattle for undergrad, and medical school at WesternU COMP-NW in Oregon. For medical school rotations, my husband and I moved to California and we were so excited to match for residency in sunny SoCal! Some of my favorite things to do are go on hikes with my two dogs, try new restaurants, cook new recipes, binge watch shows with my husband, and travel. After chief year I am planning on returning to the Pacific Northwest to work as a primary care pediatrician.
