4 years ago I quit my 9-5 to become a full-time creative. I have a consulting company called Guided by Tanya, where I help people breakthrough the paralysing fears that keep them stuck in positions that do not serve them. I teach people how to identify what truly makes them feel happy, stay calm while facing their fears and get excited about change.


I am a mixed race woman, born in the U.S. but raised in Jamaica by a Colombian mother and Jamaican father. I have an MBA from IE Business School in Madrid, Spain and Chemistry BA from Harvard University in Cambridge, Massachusetts, and I worked 6 years as a software consultant at Mercer. 


To build a community/platform for women – especially minority women – who know that offers the support, resources, and wisdom to unleash their unlimited potential


To create a world where inclusion is natural, and all ways of working are appreciated and allowed to thrive.

IE Alumni Women Network

An entrepreneur at heart I believe learning is about curiosity and discovering other paths your whole life. I like to approach everything I do with a fresh perspective and find either more efficient ways to do it, valuable insights or simply meaningful connections. With this in mind, I engage in entre/intrapreneurial as well as socially purposeful activities that generate concrete impact.

Furthermore, I like to help break down complex issues into manageable pieces and find the right path to solve or implement.  Sometimes that means opening the way. I bring to the table enthusiasm and commitment and am able to convey that while generating the necessary buy in within teams located all over the world.

I strive in diverse, vibrant and innovative environments, where ideas are brought from paper to life and am resilient during that process. I am looking forward to the next opportunity to help create economic or social value.
