Tonya Price - Director of Community
Tonya was born and raised in rural Michigan and after living all over the country finally found home in Colorado. She is an associate attorney with Jason Wiener|p.c. and specializes in cooperative and general business law. She is passionate about economic equality and bringing new norms to the business community. Tonya loves the outdoors and will almost never say no to a new adventure – although it takes a little extra push to get her out in the snow. She has felt so welcomed by the Wayfinder community that she decided it was time to give back by becoming a director. She’s often hiding in her office, an introvert by nature, but if you get her talking she’ll want to dive into a deep conversation with you about changing the world or what you’re passionate about– small talk isn’t her forte.
