Tankersley’s registered dietitian is ready to answer your questions.

Hi! I’m Jana Gardner, Registered Dietitian at Tankersley Foods.

I joined the Tankersley team in 2011. I graduated from Oklahoma State University with B.S. Degree in 1992 and M.S. Degree in Hotel & Restaurant Administration in 1996.  I have worked in health care, university foodservice, and community nutrition settings.  Work experience includes 20 years in both management and clinical settings. Management positions with Marriott Management Services, Sodexo, and ARAMARK included Catering and Retail Manager, Foodservice Director, and General Manager. I also have experience as an RD Consultant in Longterm Care, Assisted Living, and Acute Care. I have taught Nutrition and Health & Wellness at University of Phoenix.  I am also a Certified ServSafe instructor with expertise in health care survey preparedness, food safety, and sanitation.

Best job I ever had – besides working for Tankersley, was when I was a Mrs. Fields Technical Expert! I am a volunteer 4-H Leader and mom of 4 busy kids. So how can I help you? Send me an email,, or call me at 479-471-6800 (ext 4019). I’m looking forward to meeting you!
