Tanya Pushkine born and raised in Brussels, Belgium to an American-born musical conductor and German/Belgian painter. Upon moving to the USA, she was soon accepted to The Juilliard School’s Drama Division. Immediately upon graduation, she was selected to play Mozart’s wife in Amadeus on Broadway, followed by roles on television, stage, and film in both Europe and the US.
After a successful 10-year career, and the birth of two children, Tanya changed paths entirely and joined the corporate world with leading roles at LVMH, Sephora, L’Oréal, Barnes & Noble, Clarins, and Nestle Skin Health. From being a Cultural Director to running Public Relations and Corporate Philanthropy departments for luxury brands, Tanya was fortunate to work with Beyonce, Lady Gaga, Naomi Watts, Eva Mendez, John Legend, and many more. As a global communication and brand strategist, she conceived, directed, and produced major initiatives, events, and philanthropic programs.
Never letting go of her acting chops, she kept actively using the skills to coach leaders on public speaking and presentations…. until the wedding universe became her calling.
Tanya had been helping friends and family with their vows and toasts for years. Her own wedding prompted her to become a professional wedding "vow whisperer." She made the bold decision to leave the corporate world and make her way essentially creating a new category in the wedding business.
Tanya’s business, The Vow Whisperer is a service whereby Tanya helps couples write their vows, but in their own words. She is not the writer, but brings out everything from anecdotes, memories, obstacles, incredible moments, intentions for the future, and much more, and collaboratively will craft the vows using the person’s own words. Additionally, Tanya coaches on public speaking which includes not mumbling, having good voice projection, making eye contact while reading off a vow book, poise, confidence, and all the tips and tricks to make it a perfect presentation of the most intimate part of a ceremony.
Tanya is based in New York City with her husband, has two children, and works globally in several languages.
