The daughter of Cameroonian parents, Dr. Tanyi was born in Lubbock, Texas, but spent most of her youth in Cameroon. There, she experienced the limitations of a severely broken healthcare system.

Dr. Tanyi abides by five key principles of care: providing remarkable care experiences, providing cost-effective healthcare solutions, creating access to all, building better provider-patient and team relationships, and empowering others to live healthier, happier lives.
When she isn’t working, Dr. Tanyi enjoys spending time with her husband, son, and two daughters around their home in Richmond, Texas. She also spends her free time traveling, exploring nature, writing, listening to music, and studying Christian philosophy and apologetics.
