Tanya Greffard brings 15 years in Business Development, Account Management and Sales coupled with 10+ years in Customer Service, traveling extensively to maintain and develop corporate relationships.
While Tanya travelled as a caregiver for a family member it allowed her to gain first-hand experience with the stress, fear and frustration associated with traveling out of country for medical care. She understands the need to find the best and fastest option that fits within a set budget, when there is no suitable option at home. She returned home knowing there had to be a better way to navigate the medical tourism system, a way to help reduce the uncertainty. The idea of the company was born as of a result of a conversation around the possibilities of promoting a clinic in Canada.
