Industry: Business Management & Administration and Project Management


Hello, I’m Tonoa Manuel, Founder, Curator, and Lead Strategist at SIYG Consulting Firm… I’m a native of Denver, Colorado, currently residing in Aurora, Colorado with my family, but infused with a little Midwest swing. I lived in Colorado the first 15 years of my life and now the past six. 13 years of my life I spent in St. Louis, Missouri, and I were definitely molded by hustle, determination, and will! The impact of what I saw as a child, and the environment in which I was associated with, allowed me to quickly see disparity and lack of equality. I understood that I was not the only one who dealt with the struggles of self-esteem and self-love, I saw that something needed to be done and opportunity could be provided for all those that wanted and needed. I began working on myself in order to pour back into the communities that made me who I am and what I wanted to become. With over 10 years of experience in Project Management & Risk Mitigation, in both the private and non-profit sector, I’ve taken the things that I’ve learned over time and built the foundation of SIYG. I hold a Masters in Criminal Justice, combined with a B.S. in Project Management Administration. I’ve designed workshops for organizations geared towards professional development, sharpening of social & emotional skills, and assisted organizations in understanding their strategic framework and operations.


Bachelors in Project Management and Masters in Criminal Justice


Over a decade of experience in healthcare management/project management and five in Business Strategy
