As a basis for her advocacy, Tonya shares authentically how she held herself hostage as a victim of her life. As she was rebuilding her life after hitting rock bottom, she searched for help. She found seven things that worked to pull her out of her state of darkness. She now refers to them as “The 7 Power Tools for Designing Your Life.”
Backed by her purpose to contribute to the world’s beauty, she brings her story forward – in a raw and real way – to the dais, to the pages of her book and to her coaching relationships.
Tonya sees her journey as a thread between herself and others. “My gift to others is sharing my personal story of overcoming my own self-limiting thoughts and behaviors. When I share the value of the Power Tools in overcoming the abyss of self-pity and victimhood that I carried for so long, others will be inspired to live bigger, bolder, more powerful lives. I cannot think of anything more beautiful than that… and it makes everything that I went through worth it,” Tonya smiles.
Through all of her work – as an interior designer, product designer, author, speaker, coach and advocate – Tonya is bringing design to life.
