About Us

My name is Tanya Dondale and I’m a Certified Holistic Wellness Coach, Nutritional Therapist & Yoga Instructor. 

The Artsy Nerd is a nickname that came about while chatting with a friend. As a book lover, artist, writer, creator and total nerdy girl, I completely identify with it so I chose it as the name for my business.

I have over 12 years of experience & training in a variety of holistic massage modalities, yoga, coaching, meditation, yoga therapy, relaxation, mindfulness & other assorted stress management practices, as well as diplomas in “Merchandising” and “Garment and  Pattern Making.” I’m also a Canadian Certified Optometric Assistant and work for an optical company when I’m not working for The Artsy Nerd.

I am the creator of Nerdy Bits Protein Bars and Power Bites and I recently added gluten free baking to the line up of food products. In addition to making healthy but flavourful snacks, I also offer Home Cleaning and Organization Services as part of my Wellness based business.

In 2020, I began offering non medical fabric face masks, scrubs and scrub caps designed in collaboration with several local healthcare professionals in addition to my line of reusable fabric alternatives under the brand “Getting Closer to Zero Waste “.

I collaborate regularly with The Spoonery (owned by my husband, Matt) and you’ll notice a blend of our product offerings on both of our websites. All Artsy Nerd products are available at The Spoonery Outlet Store.

I’m passionate about helping people and I believe that it is never too late to make changes to guide yourself toward a more fulfilled and content life!
