Alumni Spotlight - Tanya Zimmerman


Tanya Zimmerman







Tanya Zimmerman grew up in Emporia, Virginia and earned an Associate of Applied Science from Southside Virginia Community College after completing her GED.


For over 18 years Tanya has worked for Toll Integrated Systems, a division of Toll Brothers Inc., a fortune 500 company and one of the Nation's largest luxury home builders. Currently, she is a Senior Production Control Coordinator, but has worked in many different areas from Accounts Payable, to Purchasing, to Production.


Attending SVCC allowed Tanya the flexibility to take night classes that fit around her work schedule. She says, "SVCC is a great opportunity for all students, but especially for the non-traditional student. I started at SVCC as a young, single parent and SVCC allowed me the opportunity to get a degree at my own pace." Tanya felt thoroughly prepared for her job at Toll and says, "I credit SVCC with giving me the confidence and skills to get the job that would become my career."
