About Tonya

I am originally from Indiana and have been in the Rio Rancho area for about eight months. New Mexico certainly is as beautiful and exoctic as I had hoped! I still am in awe every time I see the amazing sunsets that are uniquely Albuquerque! I have worked in long term care my entire adult life and am very comfortable working with folks from "The Great Generation." I can either work at a very faced pace multi-tasking with ease; or I can leisurely stroll while listening to stories during care activities- It really just depends on the client and what they prefer. I am very flexible and accommodating.
