Encouraging her students to shoot for the moon, Shining Star Gymnastics Owner Tonya Miller Duffey splits her time between two of her passions — coaching children and capturing moments. The Duffey Tribe Photography owner and her husband Ward are also full-time foster parents to two beautiful, little girls. Now in her tenth year as a gym owner, the busy entrepreneur offers an Excel program for competitive and recreational team cheer training as well as Mommy and Me classes for children ages two and up. “It’s fun to watch the kids I’ve coached over the years go on to play college sports,” she said. “It warms my heart to see the lives I’ve touched and those who’ve touched mine.” A 1988 graduate of Kossuth High School, Duffey is the mother of six children and the grandmother of five.
