Tonja Weimer has been coaching singles, professionals, and individuals for over twenty years. Her results are nothing short of amazing; just ask her former clients who have found their significant relationship, made advances in their careers that they never felt possible, discovered their true occupational joy, or simply brought more happiness into their lives.
Tonja Evetts Weimer is an author, columnist, Life Coach and Relationship Coach, specializing in the challenges for today’s singles. Her newspaper column, SAVVY DATING, ran in daily and weekly newspapers across the U.S. and Canada, reached 4 million people weekly and won three Matrix awards.
As a Master Certified Relationship Coach, she helps singles (many who are divorced, or are single parents) design and re-craft their lives. Tonja has been a motivational keynote speaker at hundreds of national and international conferences over the last 30 years. She draws on this motivational experience and on her graduate research in human development to help her clients find creative solutions to more rewarding lives.
Tonja has written articles that have appeared in House Beautiful, New Woman, Grandparents, and Hope magazines, as well as numerous Internet magazines.
Tonja has an M.A in Human Development and began her career as an educator and international consultant. During those years she created award-winning materials for parents, children, and teachers. Her books, music, and other materials (7 books, 6 music albums, 2 videos) won 22 national and international awards.
Tonja lost her voice in 2001 and in alignment with her philosophy, she re-crafted her life by going back to school to become a Master Certified Relationship and Life Coach. She continues to coach and manages her international practice from Greenville, SC, where she lives with her husband.
In March 2010, Tonja wrote THRIVING AFTER DIVORCE: Transforming Your Life When A Relationship Ends, Simon & Schuster/Beyond Words.
