Tonya has an unquenchable passion for empowerment and education of senior care and adult residential providers, staff and family members and considers it a privilege to have served in the senior care industry for nearly 20 years. Whether in a classroom or a community, Tonya takes great pride in ensuring that those serving seniors, in any capacity, are equipped to deal with various situations that may arise. She has been part of two start-up facilities, as well as recruited to assist troubled communities needing strong leadership and to expand existing successes. Thus, she is well-versed in all aspects of community operations, including assisted living, memory care and hospice.
Tonya also spends time as a mental health advocate for those unable to navigate that system on their own.
Fun Fact: In her free time, Tonya is an avid fisherman, preferably deep sea, although a lake will do in a pinch!
