INTRODUCING our NEWEST Team Leader

 

 

 

Tonja Johnson exhibits creativity, innovation, and determination. She has persevered through many obstacles in life, which has fueled her passions. Tonja is a married mother of one young-adult daughter and currently resides in Lakeland, Florida.

 

Professionally, she serves as the Dental Program Manager for the Florida Department of Health in Polk County and has an extensive background in public health service. She is an active member of Plant City Christian Center, The National Coalition of 100 Black Women, Polk County Chapter, and serves as a Board Member for Building Strong Families, Inc. 

 

 

Tonja is the founder of Beautifully Unblemished, a vitiligo support group that was birthed in 2017 after having a challenging time finding a local support group in the state of Florida. Tonja was diagnosed with Vitiligo in 2014 and today is 70% covered with white patches but has learned to embrace the skin she is in.

 

Her passion and drive is inspired by her own experiences dealing with Vitiligo and learning to embrace the physical changes she faces daily. Tonja is currently working diligently to promote vitiligo awareness to the Central Florida area and educate communities about vitiligo.

 

Her motto: My spots don’t define me because I am fearfully and wonderfully made!!!

 

Beautifully Unblemished…. “Loving the Skin, I’m in”

Mission:  To inspire and empower individuals in embracing the physical changes affected by Vitiligo

 

Vision:  To promote vitiligo awareness and improve self- confidence and quality of life in those affected.
