Tonya Queen, FNP-C, decided to become a nurse practitioner so she could
help care for her patients on a different level. “I wanted to provide
care at the Wellness Matters Clinic at Good Samaritan to promote wellness,
prevention and disease management within the community,” she said.
Prior to becoming a nurse practitioner, Tonya worked as a nursing professor
for Ivy Tech Community College in Terre Haute and as a registered nurse
for 13 years at Terre Haute Regional Hospital. She resides in Sullivan,
Indiana with her husband, Scott, her children, Destiny and Hunter, as
well as their dogs Bandit, Mercedes and Gizmo. In her free time, Tonya
enjoys reading, traveling and spending time with her family.
