Tina Nowak, RN

Executive Director

Tina is a native North Carolinian. She feels blessed to work in a field which allows her to work closely with and treat women who so desperately need help dealing with their body image and trauma issues.

Before Tapestry, Tina managed admissions at an acute inpatient facility, an experience that gave her many one-on-one interactions with individuals suffering from eating disorders and myriad other associated mental health concerns. She was able to use her knowledge, skills and abilities to help develop a client-centered residential eating disorder program that was previously unavailable.
