Tanya grew up in Kootenay’s, and was raised with Sons of Freedom Doukhobor values. From here she gained a deep connection and respect for her elders, consideration for the dignity of all beings, and an understanding of the wisdom of the natural world with regards to medicine and healing. In choosing her career path, Tanya’s requirement was that her time and effort would be spent helping people. This led her to the profession of Social Work, where she completed her Bachelor Degree at the University of Calgary in 2012.
Her work experience includes; providing support to children and families in high&mdashconflict and domestic violence situations; youth mentoring; community integration; working in homeless and women’s shelters; and program development and facilitation. Cannabis became a central part of Tanya’s life in 2014, when her elderly grandmother became gravely ill. After, by and large, being dismissed by the medical system, she and her family turned to cannabis oil from The Kootenay’s Medicine Tree as a means of pain management. To everyone’s astonishment, not only did it quell her pain — it gave her her life back. Doctors later told her that she had made the right decision in not fulfilling their recommendation of a major surgery — the only option they gave her if she wished to prolong her life. Tanya has much gratitude to be working for an organization where not only is she able to fulfill her career path prerequisite, but also to be on the ground floor of this industry as it’s shaped. She is pleased to be collaborating with the brave, compassionate individuals working tirelessly to set a precedent and change our society for the better. She is currently working on developing a program that extends the services of The Kootenay’s Medicine Tree to isolated and unwell seniors and individuals in need of access and support services.
