Shortly after, she was notified she would win the “Forward Under 40” Award.From serving as a keynote speaker before crowds of women to conducting individualized coaching sessions, Tonya gracefully propels women to their next stop on their personal career ladder.
“This time in my life has shown me that faith in God’s healing power is the best medicine for those suffering with serious health issues,” Tonya shares. The principle of faith is one she embodied to help her survive cancer. For this reason, she is often asked to speak publicly about the power of faith and healing.
