She is a firm, but fun and caring mother who, despite the antics of her children, is always there for them. She halted her studies to raise her family, but decided once the children were older to continue studying law. Before that, she briefly worked as Raven's English teacher at the request of Raven's school principal. Her catchphrase is "Momma like!" She has a very competitive nature to her personality. We learn that her mother, Viv, is also psychic.

Tanya is never seen again after Season 3 because she went off to England to attend law school. This was also mentioned in Cory in the House.
