She will receive this distinction at IAOTP’s 2022 Annual Awards Gala being held at the Bellagio Hotel in Las Vegas this December.

As a childhood leukemia survivor and mother of three, Tonya’s experience in the environmental health field led her to provide knowledge to families about toxins in the home and how they affect their child’s health. She is an esteemed Environmental Toxicity Specialist and the founder of Slightly Greener, helping families detoxify their homes by making small changes that have big impact over time.  She is also the author of the best-selling book The Slightly Greener Method: Detoxifying Your Home is Easier, Faster, and Less Expensive Than You Think, and has on tv shows across the country for her expertise in environmental toxins.

Her impressive repertoire of prior roles has included: Owner of Naturally Boutique: which was an online store carrying chemical-free, natural and organic products. Tonya was a Publication Editor for the National Association of Nutrition Professionals and is the creator of Slightly Greener. Her key areas of expertise are environmental toxins, effects of toxins on children, childhood cancer awareness, and de-stigmatizing learning disabilities and mental health challenges in children. 

Tonya earned her Bachelor of Science Degree in Elementary Education from Eastern Illinois University and her Master of Science degree in Holistic Nutrition from Hawthorn University where she graduated Summa Cum Laude. She also is board certified and holds multiple certificates in the environmental health field.

In addition to her successful career, Tonya is a sought-after public speaker and Children’s Mental Health Advocate.  She was a featured Speaker on Speakers Who Dare where she and her daughter discuss her daughter’s personal experience of being bullied in school. Their story was so moving that it was made into a short film documentary which got worldwide recognition and Tonya and her daughter traveled across the country to be interviewed on news stations across America.  Tonya is also a published author of Henry the Flying Squirrel, where her mission includes showing children that it is possible to overlook their label whether it is a learning disability, behavior issue or diagnosis, and to recognize their strengths. She is also a big believer in paying it forward.  She was listed as one of the “Top 15 Most Charitable Women” and founded Clubs to Cure Kids, a foundation to support childhood cancer research at Lurie Children’s Hospital, where she was treated for childhood leukemia, and Make-a-Wish Illinois. 

Ms. Harris has received awards, accolades and has been recognized worldwide for her outstanding commitment and genuine concern for the health of others.

At IAOTP’s Annual Awards Gala this December, Tonya will receive her award from 2021 as their Top Environmental Specialist of the Decade and she will receive the Empowered Woman of the Year award from 2020.
