Tonya worked for Belk Store Services heading up special events. She took a few years out of the corporate work force to raise her children. Now she is back working with Gelbach Designs.
Tonya has impacted Gelbach Designs with her laughter. She brings donuts to our staff meetings. If she cannot be there with the donuts, then we do not meet. She brings everyone their favorite donuts.
She has greased the wheels of change making our processes more streamline, cutting out unnecessary steps and has sped up our efficiency. She has organized our shop.
Tonya is a co-owner. Her style and artistic decisions are visible in the beauty and simplicity of our sets. And if we want her to put a bug in Ken’s ear– we go to Tonya. She says. “I’ll take care of that.”
Tonya is part of the Gelbach Safety Committee. She goes beyond legal requirements to ensure best conditions for the people who work here.
Tonya tends to tackle the tedious tasks tenaciously with a tantamount tolerance for tedium especially on Tuesdays.
