In 2017, Tonja founded Beautifully Unblemished Vitiligo Support Group after having a challenging time finding a local support group in the state of Florida. She was diagnosed with Vitiligo in 2014 and today is 85% covered with white patches but has learned to embrace the skin she is in. Tonja's passion and drive are inspired by her own experiences dealing with Vitiligo and learning to embrace the physical changes she faces daily.
Tonja is currently working diligently to advocate for individuals living with Vitiligo and promote vitiligo awareness to the entire state of Florida, while educating communities and legislative about vitiligo. Tonja is married to Jesse Johnson and is the mother of her adult daughter, Chelsea. She and her husband reside in Lakeland, Florida.
