Tanya joined the reception team in October 2008 after taking a break to bring up her 2 children, Olivia and Enya. Before having her children, Tanya worked for an architects company based in Arundel, joining them straight from college as a junior secretary/admin assistant working her way up to Head Secretary. In 1990 she went to work for Network Rail for 5 years as the secretary to the Divisional Operations Manager South East. In 1995 Tanya went back to work for the architects company as Office Manager for a further 8 years, leaving in 2004 to have her second child. She has always had a keen interest in horses, riding other peoples as a teenager, but now owns two ponies (Milly and Owen) and loans another (Cracker). She often rides out with her girls at weekends, enjoying the local countryside.
