About Tanya

Maximizing and harnessing the full potential in a person is my true passion.  Unleashing the expanded vision someone has for themselves and their life brings me complete joy.  Living a life you design for yourself IS truly living!  

Having the ability to see and bring out the sleeping giant in others is a gift I have always possessed even as a child and in 2005 I began using this gift professionally.  Since then I have trained, mentored, coached & aided in the transformation of over three thousand woman.  Many of these women have gone on to rebrand, reinvent and redefine themselves on their terms.  Fortunately for me I have had to reinvent myself several times so far in this lifetime. 

 Rebranding myself is something I started learning early in life, my family migrated from Jamaica when I was four years old to New York, then we lived in Texas by the age of 7 and as I was entering middle school we abruptly moved to Florida.  After the frequent relocations and attending four different high schools in four years, I learned that at any given moment I had the ability to decide who I wanted to be and how I wanted to show up.  

The ability to rebrand & redefine myself, my thoughts, my appearance, my beliefs, and paradigm were further strengthened when I took a leap of faith and left my nursing career for one in sales, and to this day is still one of the best decisions I have ever made.  I as well as the women I worked with had phenomenal success and this environment allowed me to realize that I was able to transfer the skill of reinvention.  To be able to pivot, embrace rapid change, while still being the architect of your life is a beautiful skill to poses.

The biggest and most impactful event that has caused me to master these skills was my divorce and more importantly the circumstances that lead to the divorce from the person I was with for twenty- two years. De•RAIL•ed was born through the process of bringing myself back from what I would have considered “death.”  From death and being completely derailed in life to literally living a life I am designing is absolutely amazing.

“Tanya is one of the most beautiful spirits — she is a goddess and true practitioner of Life. From the very first welcome and throughout each session, I could feel myself become more energized and inspired by her warm, calming knowledge, and by the women I could see and feel myself becoming through her guidance. She has an intuitive touch and positive energy that made each session feel like an endless wave of magic. Her session resonates beyond it’s time and extends long into feeling rejuvenated and awakened in many ways. I often found myself waking up the next day with a profound relaxed sleep, a weight off my spirit, regained energy, and opportunities and extraordinary events gently flowing into my day-to day experiences.”

“DeRailed found me when my life was just that. Derailed. From the very first meeting and very first assignment my perspective completely shifted. Not only is this program designed to bring out the best version of you, but Tanya has an amazing gift for helping women remember and find the powerful Goddess within themselves. Even though life is a constant journey, I am well on my way thanks to Tanya’s amazing life coaching. Now, every reason to quit is every reason to keep moving forward and never except failure — to always walk in and with my true Goddess power. I would definitely recommend this program to any woman who is searching for herself, and searching to feel and become whole. Thank you so much DeRailed for sharing your space, time, and energy to help me spread my wings and soar!”

I had lost myself a long time ago — I felt like I was in the middle of the ocean, trying to swim to the shore but no matter how much I was swimming and kicking, that stuck in the same place, in the same movement, in the same time, in the same water. I was overwhelmed, and felt like no matter how hard I swam, the water would hold me in place no matter what. Then for some unknown reason, I was connected to Tanya again. She does not know this part, but a week prior to our reconnection, I saw one of her Instagram posts and thought to myself, “Man, that is one person I wish I still had in my corner!” When we reconnected, she called me and asked if I would be interested in a program she had been developing, and I jumped on to it without any hesitation. I trusted Tanya, and she believed in me. And wow, did I see progress! I may not be on an actual island, but I am now able to swim and kick, and bring myself even closer. I’m treading water again. This was truly an amazing experience. I now know where to start, one step at a time, and having Tanya there to truly listen, check, understand, and care for me, made me feel like I was more than a number on her list. Because I was more than a number. She was the guiding hand who lead me back to the woman I had lost. I chose to share this picture because this is who I had lost, and with Tanya’s patience and guidance, I can now say I have found her again, and along the way I have grown wiser, stronger, and have become beautifully me again.
