About Tonja

I have been a LPN nurse since 1995. I started out as a CNA in 1991. I love taking care of people. Sometimes there is no one to help. And that's where we come in. I have worked in a Nursing Home. And also for their home health. It has always been a very special job to me. I like to help out where needed. I was 38yrs. old when I went to LPN school. I loved everything about it. Im ready to get back to work. I Love animals. I have two dogs. And love to ride horses. When ever I get time to.

    I have a passion about serving others and especially those in need and so I have found myself working as a caregiver since 2018 for different agencies. I am pretty good at listening and making sure my clients are comfortable and happy. I love traveling, learning new languages and different cultures. For the last 4 years I have been able to go back to school and completed my bachelor degree in Global and International studies and now currently working on my dual degree in the Master of Arts in philanthropic studies and in the master of Jurisprudence.
