Toni is a life-long resident of Newton, IA.
She and her husband, Kevin, live on an acreage S.E. of town. They house and care for a variety of rescue animals, including horses, miniature donkeys, pigs, goats, sheep, cats and dogs.
They are parents to three daughters and enjoy spending time with their family and two grandsons.
Toni is also actively involved as Board President of the local Chamber, Red Pride Community Service Day, H.E.A.R.T. literacy program through R.S.V.P., and as Clerk of Session with her local church. She is also a Master Gardener…which basically means she gets even more upset when plantings don't do well.
She has previously served as a Big Brother/Big Sister mentor, board member for Jasper County Animal Rescue League, NHS Athletic Booster board member, JCCPCA, Jasper County Extension Service, Project Awake and United Way of Jasper County. In 2014, she was honored as the recipient of the Chamber's "Community Service Award."
The entire family enjoys a variety of sports; specifically, the Chicago Cubs and Newton Cardinal activities.
