She Juggles It All!

Tonya York Dees is the winner of our Most Admired Woman 2015 awards in our Business Owner category and we couldn't be more impressed by this woman! She seems to be a one-woman circus juggling life and looking good while doing it. Catch up on her story in our latest issue here or continue on to find out more about what makes this "night owl" unique.

Today's Woman: Which causes are most important to you?
Tonya York Dees: Hunger and homelessness has always been issues that speak to both my sister and me, so our primary Unbridled Eve charity is Blessings in a Backpack. And we’re involved in the American Heart Association’s Go Red for Women to help raise awareness because a lot of people don’t realize that heart disease is the number one killer of women. We also give to several children’s charities, as well as to animal causes, and we always do something for cancer-related organizations because we lost our mom to ovarian cancer.

TW: How do you relax?
TYD: I spend time with friends and family, and I like to read. I like massages too, when I can get them. I also love to walk. It’s kind of like my time to regroup, and I just love being outdoors. I like to travel, too, but when it comes to vacation, I’m definitely a beach person.

TW: What are you currently struggling with?
TYD: I try to eat semi-healthy and take care of myself as much as I can with vitamins and exercise, but maybe I don’t take care of myself as much as I should. I’m a workaholic and a notorious night owl, and sometimes I just kind of get into that nonstop groove. Getting more sleep is definitely one thing I need to work on.
