Tonesha Borner
President

Went to Debakey Highschool in Houston then went to Mary Baldwin College in Virginia where I was Premed for 2 years until I switched to study business. I transferred back to Houston and graduated from U of H with a Business degree with a concentration in anagement. I worked for the District Attorney's office of Harris County in the felony courts for 9 years and then left to work at the Harris County Institute of Forensic Sciences where I became the Administrative Coordinator for the Crime Laboratory.

Also, I helped my sister start her event planning company, HolliQ Events, where I assist her as a coordinator and stylist. Officially, I'm the Director of Operations for her company.

I moved to Houston after graduating from Our Lady of the Lake University in San Antonio, Texas with a master's degree in communication disorders to start working at a rehabilitation hospital in the medical center.

It is exciting and fulfilling to work with children and adults with speech, language, and feeding disorders in English or Spanish as a bilingual speech pathologist.

As a proud Rio Grande Valley native, I currently reside in Houston, Texas, in 2015 after obtaining my bachelor degree in Psychology from the University of Texas Pan American. While at UTPA I also served as a member of Delta Zeta Sorority. I have been working in the mental and behavioral health field serving both youth and adults the past six years. Since in Houston, I have had the opportunity to enjoy helping those in need and bringing joy to those in need. “To those whom my life may touch in slight measure, may I give graciously what is mine”.
