Rev. Tanya Pile grew up in Washington. She is a PK (Preacher's Kid), which means she has lived in both Western Washington and Eastern Washington. She is a graduate of Vanderbilt Divinity School and has spent time serving churches in Nashville, Tennessee, and Dallas, Texas. She was commissioned and licensed as a Local Pastor at the Pacific Northwest Conference in June of 2018.
Tanya is married with two children and loves to road trip, travel in different countries, and, when she has time, cross-stitch. She is a big fan of SciFi/Fantasy movies and books, and can often be found reading. She loves pastry--especially any pie her Mom makes--and believes deep down that Mexican food is always a wonderful idea.
