Tomi is a firm believer in practicing what she preaches by making sure she takes care of herself amongst the busyness of everyday life. As an encourager, Tomi loves to learn new dance moves, be in nature, spend quality time with family and friends, and most importantly, she loves to eat. Her family calls her F.F.O. which means “For Food Only” because food can be her motivation at times.
