Meet the Tribe: Tracy VegaPosted 11/30/17
Tracy Vega just joined the maintenance crew at The Ziegenfelder Company’s Denver plant in September. She brought with her a long career in maintenance focused jobs.
“I started my career by asking my brother to change my oil when I was 16,” said Tracy. “He told me to do it myself. He didn’t have time. That one oil change made me realize I liked working on things. I will be starting my 29th year in maintenance in 2018.”
Before coming to the Zieggy Tribe, Tracy worked at the new FedEx facility in Broomfield, Colorado fixing conveyors and handling facility maintenance. She decided to make a job change after getting a taste of The Ziegenfelder Company’s family-like culture.
“I have made many new friends and have become a part of a great maintenance team,” said Tracy. “Maintenance is a hard lifestyle. You’re constantly moving, crawling, bending, stooping, climbing and getting pretty dirty. I love it. No day is the same and I am constantly learning. It is a great company to work for. Everyone is very nice including the owners who are very down to earth and personable.”
Family is an important part of Tracy’s life. While Tracy considers her four-legged Chihuahuas her constant companions, she has two older brothers who have provided her with many nieces and nephews.
“I am blessed with amazing family and friends,” said Tracy. “I have six nieces and nephews and I am close with all of them. The 3 youngest have been a constant in my life since their birth. I try to keep them motivated to do their best no matter what life throws at them.”
Outside of work, you may find Tracy behind a microphone or out on her motorcycle. She enjoys camping, fishing, and anything outdoors.
“I have been a DJ on the side for about 17 years,” said Tracy. “I sing and enjoy all types of music. I am also a paranormal investigator and have found some very interesting things in my research. I ride a 2012 Harley Fat Boy and participate in charity runs for children, cancer and many other worthy causes. I have been riding motorcycles since I was 16."
