Tonya Skidds is one of our Account Executives. She has been at Relyco for seven years. The first thing you’d notice about Tonya is her utterly delightful and contagious laugh. She has THE BEST giggle. Seriously. Most of us work in one large shared space, so tuning out your neighbors to concentrate becomes second nature. But it’s impossible to hear Tonya laugh and not at least crack a smile. It’s a nice ray of sunshine! Tonya has an upbeat, chipper personality to match her laugh. She’s almost always smiling. Interviewing her was a breeze because she’s extremely easy to talk to.

I live by two mottos. #1 a person is only as good as their word. #2 there are no such things as problems, there are only solutions.
What do you listen to in the car?
In the morning, Greg and the Morning Buzz, but on my way home I play a game with myself where I scan the stations. I need to correctly name the artist and song title of as many songs as I can in the 15-20 minutes it takes me to get home. My record is 27, got that last night!
