Rancho Cordova, CA – Tri Tool Technologies is pleased to announce the hiring of our first female graduate of “Advanced Welding and Introduction to Fabrication,” a program sponsored by Tri Tool through Workshops for Warriors, Miss Jamielynn Bray, who will join the team as a CNC Machinist.
Bray is a proud Navy veteran who is grateful that Workshops for Warriors provided her with a seamless transition from her military career into a machinist career path at Tri Tool. “Thanks to WFW, I was able to gain experience and receive my credentials faster than I would have to get a CNC degree,” said Bray. “I’m looking forward to working with Tri Tool and can’t wait to see what’s to come.”
