Here at Lockaway Storage, we know our success is due to our wonderful team. The care they give our renters is unparalleled and we want to highlight their milestones along the way. Below is an interview with San Antonio, TX team member Tammye Bridgeman, who is celebrating her 7-year anniversary with Lockaway Storage.
You can meet Tammye at Lockaway Storage on Babcock Road in San Antonio.
Colby: So Tammye I see your anniversary is on the 30th this month. What year anniversary are you celebrating?
Tammye: Seven Years.
Colby: Seven years. Congratulations to you! Have you always been at the Babcock location or have you traveled around a little?
Tammye: Yeah, I have always been at Babcock. When I was hired I was an assistant manager between Huebner and Babcock. After my first 90 days, I become the manager at the Lockaway Babcock facility.
Colby: So what was it about Lockaway that made you apply seven years ago? Was there something that stood out?
Tammye: I just saw the opportunity and I had been in the storage industry in Houston. After a short break I decided to get back into the industry. I was interviewed by Tristina and the rest is history.
“Tammye is one of the nicest people. She is so sweet and so kind She has a really big heart. She puts on our Texas Company picnic that’s in San Antonio. She does all of the food for it. She would also routinely feed her auction customers. Years ago, we did a benefit walk and she couldn’t attend, but she cooked us a massive meal! She is so good at it. She is one of those people who puts all her love into her food and feeds the people she loves.”

Colby: There you go. So, what advice would you give to somebody who is moving to San Antonio for the first time? Any good spots to go or things to see?
Tammye: The River Walk is an absolute must. The Blanco Cafe for their world famous cheese enchiladas. Besides the Blanco Cafe, my fave restaurant in SA is Dough, for pizza. Very well known place…kinda famous! We are also really well known for SeaWorld in San Antonio. The San Antonio Zoo is also great. There is a lot of history here and San Antonio never misses an opportunity to have a parade. Fiesta here is a really big deal, and of course we have the San Antonio Spurs.
Colby: So what are your favorite hobbies when you aren’t at work?
Tammye: Zumba is a dance cardio fitness class. I also love cooking and baking.
“Tammye is one of the most welcoming people I have met. The other day, I was at her store and she got a phone call and I could have sworn it was personal call, but it was someone calling inquiring about renting a storage unit. From the minute she picked up the phone, she made a connection and it sounded like the conversation was about inviting someone to a party, but she was inviting them in to take a tour. She has grown so much over the years. When she accomplishes something, she tries to build from there. She has made connections with a lot of our customers.“
Thomas Nannen, Lockaway Storage District Manager
Colby: Finally is there anyone you would like to give a shout out to in celebration of 7 years?
Tammye: It has to be Tristina and Don Clauson. I am so grateful to them for allowing me to be a part of the team. They guide me and believe in me, and help me learn by my mistakes. It’s been a great experience being a part of Lockaway Storage.
