Loren's Badass Chick

Taniya Nayak

This week's Badass Chick  is Taniya Nayak, interior designer and TV host. 

Design seems to be in Taniya's blood. Her father was an architect and she vividly remembers visiting his work and going to job sites with him as a young girl. She went to school for marketing and realized soon after graduation that it wasn't necessarily for her. So she went back to school and got her Master's from Boston Architectural College. After she began working in the design field, everything shifted and began to fall in place. 

Taniya started her own design firm in 2005 (Taniya Nayak Design LLC), has hosted tons of HGTV shows like Designed to Sell and House Hunters on Vacation, and is currently a featured designer on Food Network's Restaurant Impossible. She's been honored with the Excellence in Design Award and has been ranked in the top 10 of INDIA New England's Business Women of the Year. On top of all of her accomplishments, Taniya spends her free time volunteering with great organizations like Room to Dream, Smile Train and No Kid Hungry.

On June 4th, Taniya will be hosting Taste of the Nation for No Kid Hungry. The event brings together the country's top chefs, sommeliers and mixologists to raise money in an effort to ensure that all kids in America have access to healthy food every day.
