Tonya Sook, FNP-BC, APRN-C
Dermatology Nurse Practitioner
Tonya Sook graduated summa cum laude from Bethel College in Newton, Kansas with her BS in nursing in 1997. She worked in many different areas of nursing over 13 years: ICU, labor and delivery, neonatal intensive care, and home care nursing.
Aspiring to be a nurse practitioner, Tonya went back to school at Wichita State University in Wichita, Kansas while raising two small children, working full-time as a bedside nurse, and taking night classes. Tonya graduated from Wichita State in 2009 with her family nurse practitioner degree, and started her new career in dermatology working in Wichita. Tonya then worked for a plastic surgeon for several years, where she practiced aesthetic medicine.
Tonya moved to Colorado Springs and joined Vanguard in 2012, where she was one of the founding medical providers for Clara MediSpa.
Tonya has a deep background in both medical dermatology and aesthetic dermatology, giving her a unique perspective. For example, Tonya is trained in dermoscopy and the diagnosis of skin cancer, so that before any spots are treated cosmetically, she first makes a medical diagnosis. Her focus is ensuring healthy skin.
Tonya specializes in non-surgical approaches to skin rejuvenation at Clara MediSpa.
A Midwest Kansas girl at heart, Tonya grew up in the city of Hays. Every minute she is away from work, she visits family and friends across the Midwest.
Tonya married her high school sweetheart, and together they have two children, a son and daughter.
Tonya enjoys gardening, cooking, organizing, spending time with family and friends, and watching her son play baseball and her daughter dance. If you do not find Tonya in her backyard, working in the dirt with her sunscreen and hat, you will find her in the kitchen cooking up something tasty. Other hobbies include watching HGTV or the Food Network, hiking, long walks with her dogs, and decorating homes for friends and family.
