While there are many things I love about my job, the best part is the endless variety and teamwork. While I absolutely never know what the day will bring, the quality and dedication of my team is fundamental to our success. The enthusiasm for genuine hospitality that we have created here is what makes it such a wonderful experience for everyone.
My favorite thing to do on Nantucket is to go to the beach with my family. We often go to Jetties on the harborside and spend the whole day. In the winter we seek out warmer climates. My husband, Eric, and I have two amazing kids that share our passion to travel, so we go as often as possible.
I enjoy meeting all the guests that visit The Wauwinet and Nantucket Island. We have curated some special relationships over the years! Sharing all the unique aspects that the island has to offer. In my job I get to personally interact with all the guests during there stay and make them feel at home.
My favorite things to do on the island is to go clamming in the harbor in the summer and deep sea fish for bluefin tuna in season. After all that, I like to BBQ and drink wines from France & Italy!
My wife Bettina and I have two children who love the island and can regularly be found at the Juice Bar, Stubbys or Oath Pizza?

Tania says one of her favorite things about her job is meeting and working with people from different countries. She also enjoys seeing new island visitors, be it colleagues or guests, get captivated by the charm of Nantucket, just as she did many years ago. While Tania does not have any relatives on Nantucket, she considers herself very lucky to be able to count some close friends, who live here, as her island family. Her favorite thing to do on Nantucket is hang at the beach with friends anytime, a thick foggy day can be just as fun as the perfect beach day!
