February 8, 2023
At Tamarack Ridge, we know that to provide the best care, we must find the right people who will be in the right places doing the right things for the right reasons. As one of our core values, we believe that each team member is here for a reason, to make a difference in our residents' lives. We are committed to filling our team with individuals willing to go above and beyond to provide our residents with the best care possible.

Meet our Director of Nursing, who exhibits all of the right qualities, Tanya Holcomb! Tanya comes to our skilled nursing facility with 15 years of experience in healthcare. She believes she found her true calling in the long-term care industry, and we're privileged that she has chosen to lead our teams at Tamarack Ridge.

Get to Know Tanya

When did you start your career in healthcare?

"I became an LPN in 2008 and managed an assisted living facility for approximately five years in Hudson, Ohio. I returned to Kent State University Twinsburg and graduated with an associate degree in Nursing in 2013. During this time, I received my wound certification, certified dementia practitioner certification, and nursing home infection preventionist certification. I have been blessed as a Director of Nursing to assist with opening and assisting numerous assisted living and skilled nursing facilities."

Why did you choose to work in the healthcare industry?

"I chose healthcare to be able to give back and make a difference in the lives of others. The most remarkable part about healthcare to me is being able to collaborate with a team to take care of an individual who truly needs it, to watch them heal and be able to return to their home. I love that it takes a village, including the family and staff of a facility, to achieve that one goal for an individual."

How has healthcare changed your life?

"I truly care for others as if I was in their situation. Residents and families come first. I have been blessed by amazing families, residents, mentors, medical professionals and especially staff members who have taught me so much during my healthcare journey."

What do you love most about your job?

"Having a team of clinical professionals that create a positive moment and who gives compassion to our families and residents even during the tough moments in their lives."

What has been your favorite memory at a facility?

"I was a DON at a facility and we had a resident who had no family. The bond she and I had turned as if we became family. That time and experience I cared for her was unbelievable and changed my perspective in my position of healthcare."

Tanya is truly one-of-a-kind! She has a heart of gold and is constantly changing the lives of those around her. We couldn't feel luckier to have her as our DON. Who Tonya is, makes a difference every day!
