Tonya is a Beloved Community Co-op Board Member. She is a true believer in Proverbs 22:6, “Train up a child in the way he should go; even when he is old he will not depart from it.”
In her years of educational training, she has received a bachelor’s degree from Anderson University in Information Systems, an MBA with a concentration in Health Care Administration from Indiana Wesleyan, and an Associates in Nursing from Ivy Tech. She and her husband, Jerome, have a blended family consisting of 4 adult children and 1 son who is completing his senior year in high school.
Tonya has a passion for instilling in children that they are “fearfully and wonderfully made” (Psalm 139:14), that God loves each and every one of them and they are “created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do” (Ephesians 2:10). With love, encouragement, and the proper “training,” Tonya believes that children will learn to love God, themselves, and others.
