A multi-published, award-winning daily news journalist and former investigative reporter.
Yes, she’s a media expert and an experienced journalist, but more so Tanya is an entrepreneur who has known adversity, fought it, “lost to it”, and then come back.
Swapping the newsroom for retail, Tanya lost her first six-figure business to an inland tsunami which killed 38 people in Queensland, Australia, in 2011.
Having secured national and international media for that business – an online retail store and party plan venture which reached the top 100 of its kind – entrepreneurs were quick to ask Tanya for her secrets, and begged her to teach them how she did it.
So, when the flood waters receded Tanya did just that.
She built another six-figure business, but this time in just six months – as a solo parent, on zero income and with zero marketing budget.
Always “walking the talk”, Tanya has been quoted and featured in national and international media – including magazines, newspapers and television – and was also a consultant editor for the true story of serial killer Leonard Fraser, in the landmark book Things A Killer Would Know.
Born in Hereford, England before emigrating to the Middle East and then Australia, Tanya is a multi-published, award-winning daily news journalist with 20 years industry experience. She now lives with her daughter and two cocker spaniels on the Gold Coast, in Queensland, where they pursue their love of mud running.
Andrea completed her Bachelor of Physiotherapy at LaTrobe University, Victoria in 2005. Since then, she has followed her interest in Women’s Health, completing her Postgraduate Certificate in Continence and Pelvic Floor Physiotherapy in 2008 at the University of Melbourne.
Her experience in Women’s Health has included clinical work in hospital wards, outpatient clinics, pre and postnatal exercise classes, antenatal education and active birthing classes, private practice work as well as teaching women’s health related subjects to final year students at LaTrobe University.
Andrea has had experience treating and managing conditions such as urinary and faecal incontinence, pregnancy-related musculoskeletal discomforts, detrusor overactivity, pelvic organ prolapse, pelvic floor dysfunction, dyspareunia, vaginismus and vuvlodynia.
Andrea is the mother of 3 children and moved up to the Gold Coast from Melbourne with her husband and children 12 months ago. She has a passion for women’s health education and promotion.
