A fun fact about me

Yona moved to Tyler in 2005 with her three children, Natalie, Erica, and Trey. Yona loves spending time with her children and five grandchildren who affectionately call her Nona. Two of her grandchildren share her name, Tre’yona and Eri’yona. A fun fact about Yona is she loves speed walking, and you may find her strolling in any of the parks in Tyler or in the Cascades walking backwards up the hills.

Why I feel inspired to be a Woman Of Hope

Yona’s inspiration to be a Woman of Hope lies within her innate desire to help people- especially our youth; for they are our future. When she thinks about these kids and the suffering they have endured at the hands of predators, she thinks of her own children and precious grandbabies and if she can be instrumental in helping to restore hope where hopelessness resides, she wants to be a part of that restoration.

Community Involvement:

Yona is actively involved with the following organizations: Circle of Red Society of the American Heart Association, The Tyler Heart Ball Leadership Team, Advisory board member at Tyler Junior College in the Medical Office Management and Health Information Management Programs; and Leadership Tyler, Class 37.

She has served as the President of East Texas Health Information Management Association (ETXHIMA) and Board of Director of Region 3 of Texas Health Information Management Association (TXHIMA). She has also volunteered and served the United Way of the Brazos Valley prior to moving to Tyler.
