Sonya Tetnowki, IHC

The Indian Health Center is happy to announce that on June 30th Sonya Tetnowski became the IHC's new Chief Executive Officer (CEO). After several years of searching, IHC's Board of Directors chose Sonya to be a part of our team and looks forward to the IHC's growth under her leadership.

Before beginning her role as the IHC's CEO, Sonya has helped multiple tribal governments advance economically through many large scale and successful initiatives. She also served for 8 years in the United States Army as a Special Operations Sergeant (Airborne). Please join the Indian Health Center in welcoming Sonya!

Sonya was born in Milton, Florida to Oscar Dannel and Lois I. Claplanhoo-Dannel, and is the youngest of 4 siblings. Her father served in the Air Force and her mother was in the Navy, but both left the service when Sonya was born. The family moved back to the Makah Reservation located in Neah Bay, Washington and was very involved with their community. Sonya remembers her immediate and large extended family coming together for many events to sing their family songs. read complete article...
