Faces of EHS: Tanya Jenke Gets Candid About the Value of Organizational Safety Culture


After graduating from Trent University, Canada with her B.S. in Environmental Science, Tanya Jenke started her career in the environmental, health, and safety (EHS) field as a lab technician for a professor. After two years of analyzing air, water, and soil samples for chemical hazards, Jenke sought another opportunity that would allow her to collaborate with others and “see how they interacted with their work environment.”

“I took my occupational hygiene knowledge and enrolled into a course in Occupational Health and Safety at McMaster University, Canada,” Jenke informed EHS Daily Advisor.  “After graduating, I started looking for consulting jobs in OH&S, which is where I discovered Medgate, now called Cority. I called every day for two weeks until they brought me in for an interview. Luckily, my persistence paid off and 15 years later I am still here and loving it.  I use my knowledge and expertise in OH&S to empower our customers to implement EHS solutions.”

Today, Jenke is the General Manager for Cority APAC where she manages the company’s Professional Services,Customer Support, and Customer Success teams internationally. Cority is the leader in environmental, health, safety and quality (EHSQ) software. Jenke is also studying for her Ph.D. with Dr. Marcus Cattani at Edith Cowan University with the School of Medical and Health Sciences.
