About Dr. Tongie
Tongie Scott, a.k.a. Dr. Tongie helps countless soon-to-be business owners/individuals live a more productive, dedicated, and purposeful life. Born in Columbus, Mississippi, to a single mother. Being introduced to the importance of establishing a relationship with God through Christ at a very young age; Dr. Tongie has seen firsthand the benefits of this relationship. After attending Caldwell High School and graduating a year early, Dr. Tongie quickly learned that life needed a plan of action. Forced to discontinue her studies at Mississippi University for Women in the fall of 1988, Dr. Tongie focused on becoming a great Mother to her three children: Ty, Tryone, and Morgan. But as life would have it, Dr. Tongie, in 1992, was diagnosed with malignant papillary carcinoma of the thyroid. After treatment of radiation therapy, Dr. Tongie was finally ready to thrust herself into life.
Upon matriculating into medical school at 31 years old; Dr. Tongie proved to herself and her children that no matter how old you are if you believe that you can and deserve to be “here”; you will. Before launching interactive shows such as Talk to Tongie (featured on Facebook Live) and the Dr. Tongie Show, (featured on LA Talk Radio), Dr. Tongie served several years as the CEO of Me and My Nanna, LLC-A Home Care Company. And as a medical consultant for families looking for skilled facilities, convalescent homes and assisted living facilities for their loved ones. After a successful career helping adult students discover their passion in medicine and serving as an in-demand motivational and inspirational speaker; Dr. Tongie now creates opportunities for those who desire to truly discover who they were born to be by asking five (5) simple questions: (1) Who are you?; (2) Where are you from?; (3) What can you do (your abilities)?; (4) Why were you born?; and (5) What is your destiny? She believes that the individual who can answer those questions will cause a shift in their lives, and they will be the change they want to see in themselves.
When not traveling, Dr. Tongie enjoys spending time with her family and dancing. One of her favorite places to go and have fun...a Zumba Class.
