She developed a curriculum and coaching program to give physicians the tools they need to enjoy their lives and thrive in their chosen careers. She remains active clinically as on-call faculty for the Alaska Family Medicine Residency and for the local FQHC.

Residency is hard.  I think we all question, at some point our abilities and our purpose in medicine.  Professional coaching was new to me but Tonya made it valuable, convenient and fun.  She is a joy to work with and helped me find the joy in family medicine. I highly recommend her to anyone in medicine that experiences burnout, frustration in their careers or simply needs to refocus.
