Today we want to introduce you Yolanda, our awesome purchasing assistant.
I have worked at Sealeze for 16 years. When I started, I was assigned to the Industrial Department working on manufacturing our coils. I then moved to the Shipping Department, working on kits and weather seal orders as well as shipping orders via UPS and FedEx. After seven years of working in the plant, I moved to the office and took the position as a Purchasing Assistant. I am thankful that I have had the opportunity to work in several different departments at Sealeze. I have learned so much throughout the past 16 years.
What is your school/career background?
I graduated high school in Honduras, then took two years of classes in graphic design. After finishing the second year I started working for a printing company as a graphic designer. I then went to work for IBM in Honduras as an administrative assistant. I moved to the United States in 1998, and worked for a factory in downtown Richmond, Virginia in the Inventory Department for one year then received a position at Sealeze.
Tell us about a time when you help a customer solve a problem:
My customers are internal and vendors. I receive and post the material promptly to ensure the customer will receive their manufactured product on time. I make sure the office supplies are readily on hand, so that copiers, printers, label makers etc. are always working properly. I am also fluent in Spanish and English and assist Spanish speaking customers when placing an order.
What do you like to do outside of work?
I have 3 wonderful children, one son and two daughters. My son is the oldest and lives in New Jersey with his wife and they have given me two beautiful grandsons. My daughter is 20 and lives close to me and I enjoy every moment that I spend with her. My youngest daughter is nine and she keeps me very busy with summer camps, soccer, swimming and basketball teams.
My husband and I have a place at the Wicomico River. I enjoy being there on the weekends and spending time with my husband and youngest daughter and many friends and family. We enjoy fishing, crabbing and going out in the boat. I also enjoy watching classic western movies and dancing.
