Tonya grew up in Fort Collins and always dreamed of becoming a veterinarian. However, at age 16 she discovered an aversion to blood and an attraction to numbers. So, as talents would have it, she became an accountant and has spent many years in the trenches of CPA firms, doing accounting for a variety of business types. Tonya joined the CLAVS team as our Accountant in May, 2013. She came to us with Bachelor’s degrees in both Accounting and Finance, from the University of Northern Colorado and brings 17+ years of accounting experience to the office team.
A lifetime resident of the state of Colorado, Tonya lives on her family’s ranch in Nunn, CO, where she raises quarter horses and paint horses. Tonya competes in amateur reining and is a horse enthusiast through and through. Outside of the arena, Tonya has spent many hours in the saddle traversing the rugged Rocky Mountains, starting colts and working on the ranch.
