Tanya decided to go on a two-week cruise to clear her head and think about her marriage while Darren stayed at home with the Children. On the cruise Tanya was having a great time until the ship crashed. Tanya woke up on a beach with no memories whatsoever. She had no idea she had two kids and a husband, all she could remember was her own name. Not knowing where she was, she realized she was stranded and began to build herself a fire and shelter. A few months passed as she explored the island. She eventually came across some more survivors of the shipwreck. She decided to work with them for a while. Tanya continued searching the island until she came across some natives. She began to do some taks for them. There she met a man named Ahio who she fell for instantly.
She completed more tasks for the natives and attended a special Volcano celebration. There, she done a few tasks to impress Ahio and shared her very first kiss with him. After a while Ahio got infected with an illness that the natives thought was a curse. Tanya had no choice but to find a cure within three days otherwise Ahio would die. Eventually she found the cure after banishing Winford Rhinehart from the island. She took the cure to Ahio and saved him. A few moments later a helicopter showed up to take all the survivors home. Still having no memories Tanya decides to stay on the island with Ahio thinking there is nothing for her at "home".

- Tanya's story is similar to that of her daughters, Jenna, original counterpart.
- When Tanya made her first appearance in The Sims Castaway Stories she was thought to be the original Tanya from the Original timeline. However, after the release of The Sims 2: Ultimate Collection it was announced that the Tanya appearing in this game is the same one who appeared in The Sims Castaway Stories, thus being an alternate version of the original Tanya. This was to give her a backstory before the release of The Sims 4.
