Tanya Giaquinto

Director - Outreach

Tanya Giaquinto is excited to be a Grindstone Board Member in her role as Outreach. Her volunteer experience with Grindstone started off at the Laura Stacey Sticks for Charity in 2019 selling apparel and she was hooked.

Tanya has served on different boards including St. George’s Nursery School, both grade school and high school parent associations in different positions and also chaired the BRICKS Award Committee for multiple years. She was a registered dietitian for approximately 20 plus years creating and giving presentations on a variety of health and wellness topics in business, non for
profit settings, and school settings covering all age groups.  This also included food demonstrations on eating well and nutritional counselling.  She spent many years doing outreach presentations for Sunnybrook Odette Cancer Centre. She retired from the profession to focus on other projects.  One of her favorite roles was being the cheerleader for both her son’s and daughter’s sports teams.

Currently, Tanya sits on the NISPA board managing different committees while working with a great group of volunteers and school PA members. 

Tanya has two children; her daughter Tamara who attended Appleby College is now at Boston University in the Questrom business program while playing hockey and Matthew who graduated from St. Mike’s and will be attending the Laurier University Business program.

When Tanya is not volunteering, she enjoys reading, taking walks, traveling to Italy to visit family and loves music.
