Tanya Aitken

HG KIDS LEADER //                                        COUNSELING MENTOR

Tanya, an Army veteran of 9 years and her husband Larry, currently a CW3 in the Army, are parents to two amazing kiddos. They came to the High Ground by way of invitation from another family and never looked back. As well as loving and leading in the discipleship process, Tanya currently leads our HG Kids ministry and is our counseling guru. Tanya will be attending training soon for counseling on a more formal level. She believes in telling people her story which opens the door for real, honest ministry and the rest just kind of falls into place. 


Veronica Tolas

Worship Leader

Originally from Long Beach, California, Veronica has lived in Kentucky since fall 2014 with her husband CW2 Robert Tolas, and children, Luke, Landyn and Lainey. She has been a member of The High Ground family since January 2015. Quickly she came to know and love the spirited people of THG, a place she could worship with her zany family with no judgment only acceptance and kindness.
 She has her BA in Musical Theatre Performance and English, and her MA in Theatrical Text and Performance from The Royal Academy of Dramatics Arts. 
Veronica has faithfully served local churches, both large and small, in California, Alabama, London, and now Kentucky, with a focus on worship and praise.  Her faith is most clearly communicated through music, and desires to bring others closer to God through song.
