About Tanya

I'm a compassionate, dependable, fun loving caregiver with over 20 years experience. At the young age of 20, I got my start in home care. I then received my CNA from St. Mary's Manor in Pa but obtained exceptional training and experience from The Hospital of the University of Pa, where I worked for over 13 years. Since leaving HUP, I decided to go back to where it all began, home care. I also love children and decided to be a nanny for a few years. Although I LOVE being a nanny, I'm back to my passion and where it all began, home care. It's very rewarding for me to be able to offer my patients/clients the best care possible and many happy memorable moments.
