Tanja Kaneshiro-1-opt

Executive Assistant to the President

Tanja joined ACHS in 2012 with an enthusiasm for holistic health and essential oils. She brings an extensive, varied skill set to the college including administration, client relations, sales, and project management.

Tanja grew up in Wisconsin, with an early start as an organic gardener at age 10. Tanja’s passion for holistic medicine was cultivated by her mother’s interest in alternative health modalities.

With a curiosity for the natural world and ecosystems, Tanja graduated with a BS in Biology from Lewis & Clark College in Portland, OR. She followed in her parents’ artistic footsteps and earned a BA in Graphic Design from Portland State University. With the a mix of left and right brain talents, she offers assistance to the president of the college.

In her free time, you can find Tanja creating DIY art and collage projects, scouring estate sales for treasures, or enjoying brunch with her husband and friends. Her two cats and many dog friends keep her entertained. She looks forward to volunteering and exploring all that this fabulous city of Portland has to offer.
