Meet the Tribe: Tonya NewsomePosted 07/10/17
“I’ve worked in shipping and receiving since July 23, 2012,” said Tonya. “It’s been a great, and humbling, learning experience.”
Tonya said she was first attracted to working at the Ziegenfelder Company because the management was approachable. Now, she also enjoys the challenge of learning new things and sharing her knowledge with others. Even fellow Zieggy Tribe member, Daisy Lucio, recognized all that Tonya does to help others by nominating Tonya for Meet the Tribe.
“Tonya, our forklift driver in Chino, has been supporting me and helping me since I started as secretary,” said Daisy. “I think she should be recognized for her hard work!”
“What I enjoy most about my job is learning how to rebuild parts,” said Tonya. “I do not find any of it hard but I love the challenge. If I could change anything about the company, I’d expand it making the warehouse larger. In the future, I can see myself training employees.”
That desire to help others could come from her family and friends. Tonya describes them as “really kind and loving people.” In Tonya’s free time, she enjoys taking road trips and finding different events where she can dance.
