Tonya Whetsel was my father’s assistant for 17 years. Both in my four years as CEO at UMB and in the last year of my father’s life, I had a chance to work closely with her. Not only is Tonya a very well organized, very hard working person but her thoughtfulness and care, her understanding of all the people she is working with and for, and her ability to see needs before they are felt, work under pressure, and remain cheerful , solicitous, and professional is extraordinary.

Tonya Whetsel worked alongside me in a Human Resources role for a number of years. Her work ethic, attention to detail, organizational skills and professionalism was outstanding. In addition, her ability to recognize and resolve issues in a calm and deliberate manner was widely recognized by those at all levels. She is one that can be trusted to keep information confidential and to use good judgment in accomplishing the tasks she’s assigned. Lastly, people are drawn to her quick wit and her fun and engaging personality. I highly recommend her for your consideration.
Doug Anderson – Employee Relations Consultant
The thing I appreciate most about Tonya is the fact that she consistently looked for ways to make my life easier and allowed me the time to focus on the things I enjoy and apply myself to the things that needed my attention. The quality of her work is top-notch. I never had to worry about projects I delegated to her because they were always done well. When the job is done well, it makes it so much easier to take that foundation and build upon it later.
Petey McKnight – Vice President Marketing
Tonya is the most organized, dependable and patient person to work with. Her help coordinating two recent moves in four different locations was invaluable. She is detail oriented and such a pleasure to work with!
