Tanya D. Krueger grew up in the small town of Menasha, Wisconsin. Born with Spina Bifida and Congenital Scoliosis, doctors encouraged her parents to place her in an institution instead, they took her home. Tanya spent the first thirteen years of her life in and out of hospitals often with life threatening conditions. As a result, many had low expectations for her, but that did not discourage Tanya from living her life and doing what she wanted. She had to battle discrimination, especially in the school system, she graduated from high school in 1999 and received her Bachelor’s degree from the University of Wisconsin Oshkosh in Radio/TV/Film production and a minor in Communication.
