Tonya Winders, MBA

Vienna, Virginia, United States
Tonya first started serving as an advocate when as a child she stood up for herself and others on the playground. In 2004, she learned the importance of patient empowerment when she overcame a rare form of cancer. Today, Tonya has more than 20 years of experience in leadership roles within the allergy and asthma industry.

From sales and marketing leadership to managed markets access, she works tirelessly to ensure patients have access to effective diagnostic and treatment tools. Tonya serves on several expert panels including Global Initiative for Asthma (GINA) and the American Thoracic Society Public Advisory Roundtable. She serves as Chair of the Board of Directors of the American Respiratory Care Foundation and is the current President of the Global Allergy & Airways Patient Platform, representing 60+ respiratory patient organizations throughout the world.

Tonya is so passionate about her work in part because she is the mother of five children, four of whom have asthma and/or allergies. She is a fierce patient advocate who has authored more than 30 peer-reviewed publications and speaks globally to ensure the patient voice is always valued.
