Tanja started her healthcare career at the front desk of a large healthcare institution in Portland in 2013. Her hard work and eagerness to learn propelled her into a management position within the first 4 years of her career. During that time, she learned a tremendous amount about healthcare, providers, staff and most of all, patients and the patient experience. Having grown up working in restaurants, she quickly learned the importance of customer service and strives to ensure that everyone who walks through the clinic doors leaves feeling heard and appreciated. She decided in April 2016 to branch into private practice and was blessed enough to find her position at Portland Plastic Surgery Group.
Tanja was raised in the mountains of Colorado and is a die-hard Denver Broncos fan. She lived in 4 different states before settling in Oregon to be near her family who all, at some point, moved from Colorado and settled in the Portland area. When she is not working in the clinic, Tanja volunteers with a non-profit group she helped to found that raises money for students educational and athletic needs.
