Tanya Christensen supports us as the Administrative Assistant at our Coralville office. She earned her bachelor’s degree in Therapeutic Recreation from Brigham Young University and was a stay-at-home mom for nearly 20 years.
A multi-tasker by nature
Tanya is a welcoming and helpful person that is not afraid to tackle a problem. As one of the first faces in our Coralville clinic, she knows that she can help to set a supportive tone for someone who may need it.
There is no doubt that she has mastered the art of multi-tasking. After being a stay-at-home mom for than twenty years, she has juggled it all. This includes homeschooling all six of her children, an experience she is very grateful for. As if that’s not enough to keep a person busy, she is also very involved in her faith community through participation, attendance, and volunteering.
Advocates for mental health
The opportunity to utilize her skills in a mental health environment is a bonus for Tanya. In a previous role she worked with at-risk youth, and enjoyed being a positive and uplifting presence for them. Similarly, she recognizes the importance that mental health has in the community. In addition, she has witnessed those close to her struggle with symptoms and does not hesitate to be a voice for those who can’t advocate for themselves.
Outside of work, Tanya enjoys baking, traveling, and spending time with her family. She is also an avid runner and competes in half-marathons and fun runs.
