Ms Tonya Peters is the Development Manager at Ruyton. She works as part of the Community Relations team with a focus on growing philanthropy within the community.
‘It is the generosity of the community which stands out to me. People give their time and talents in order to provide our girls with the best opportunities. We have generous donors who invest in the future of the School, a very active parent body and alumni who are always willing to come and share their experiences with current students. The Ruyton Community is something truly unique, established by our girls, their families and staff across many generations.’
After a variety of career paths, which have included hospitality management, teaching, finance and marketing, Tonya has identified that philanthropy and fundraising is her area of passion. Tonya joined the team at Ruyton in 2011, initially as the Director of Development, and in 2017 embraced the opportunity to further grow and support the Ruyton Foundation in the Development Manager role. In her free time Tonya loves to travel and learn from other cultures, especially in the South East Asia region. She speaks Thai and enjoys cooking Thai cuisine.
