ABOUT TONI M. ZAVANA
TONI M. ZAVANA is the CEO and founder of Evo Pro Biz Solutions, a company dedicated to saving new entrepreneurs time and money by offering strategies for growth and development. Appalled by the statistic that by the end of the 5th year, nearly 50% of small businesses fail (SBA.gov/advocacy – August 2018), Ms. Zavana determined to use her extensive business and management experience to give entrepreneurs an advantage to change that sobering statistic. Ms. Zavana subscribes to the maxim: “Failure to plan equals planning to fail” as a foundation to assist businesses with the kind of short and long-term planning required for success.
Ms. Zavana, an American-born woman of Caribbean descent, was raised in the Midwest. Those Midwestern roots inform her foundational values of hard work, ethics, and collaboration and are the hallmark of both her professional career and her personal life. In her professional life, Ms. Zavana has worked for local, state, and federal agencies as well as serving in leadership roles within the community.
In addition to the Juris Doctor awarded by the David A. Clarke School of Law in Washington, DC, Ms. Zavana also holds a Master of Science degree in Human Services and a Bachelor of Arts degree in Sociology. Further, she holds the following credentials: commissioned notary in the Commonwealth of Virginia and the State of Maryland; Americans With Disabilities (ADA) Coordinator with a Title III Business certification; English as a Second Language (ESL) teacher; and Mental Health First Aid certified. Ms. Zavana is also a trained and certified paralegal with concentrations in disability and litigation.
Toni Zavana has been a member of Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Inc. since 1997, and is a shareholder of the NFL Green Bay Packers team.
