I have been waiting to feature Almeda since I started the Meet the Makers series. She is truly a one-of-a-kind person to work with. Never once has she greeted me without an ear-to-ear smile. Almeda is an example of just how impressive most of the factory's employees are- she has been with the company for over 30 years and last year she had PERFECT attendance for work. That is literally unheard of, and the wild thing is that she is not the only one who had perfect attendance last year.
Almeda works in the 1st making department- rotating between cutting and preparing insole and using the clicker to cut uppers. In her spare time, she loves bowling and is a member of a weekly bowling league.
I look forward to highlighting more of these amazing people who I am lucky enough to work with. Thank you for the support!
