The New 97.7 Woman Of The Week - Week of May 7, 2018
Name: Tonya Nash
From: Lynn, MA
About The Woman Of The Week:
Tonya was born and raised in Lynn, MA. She is the most dedicated and caring person that you could ever meet. She has a big heart, and a thing for helping people. She used to care for kids at after school programs, and went on to study Early Childhood Education. Unfortunately her mother fell ill and was suffering from several strokes. Tonya decided to take on the full-time responsibility of caring for her mother, "Ma Nash" as she was affectionately called.
Tonya's world sadly got turned upside down at the drop of a dime. She lost her father, her mom, and her daughter's father, all just months apart. Then not too long after that, she also lost her step father.
After dealing with all that loss, she decided to pursue a career helping the elderly. She got her Home Health Aide/CNA certificate and started doing private care. She did so good with one elderly gentleman that she also started caring for his elderly wife, and worked with both of them for years up until their last days. This made her realize that aging is an inevitable process, and there are challenges that come with it. That being said, Tonya decided that she loved taking care of the elderly so much that it was time to open her own business. She recently opened up her own private care business "Tops Passionate Private Home Care".
She doesn't have much time for herself but she still manages to take care of her home, her family, and her community. She volunteers her time for lots of charity events that benefit the elderly, and also volunteers for "Stop The Violence Lynn". She is proud to be from Lynn and as she always says, loves her 781 family! She has one daughter, and two beautiful grandchildren who adore her.
Favorite 97.7 Artists: Lisa Lisa & Cult Jam, Mary J. Blige, Aaliyah
Tonya's Song Pick: Aaliyah - "One In A Million"
