Wanda grew up in Norman Park, Georgia and was one of the founding members of Southern valley along with her late husband, Benny Hamilton, and her two sons Kent and the late Kirk Hamilton. She is now married to Ed Tyler and the proud grandmother of four wonderful grandchildren she enjoys seeing often. Wanda has worked at Southern Valley since 1987 and, although she is now “semi-retired” she oversees general management and enjoys coming to work and keeping in contact with the business. She says, “I grew up on a farm and I’ve always enjoyed agriculture. Being in the produce business, helping to feed the country, has been rewarding. Knowing you are helping people and helping make a difference, even if it’s one box at a time. I also enjoy working with my family and friends. Even though we aren’t all blood related, we act and feel like family around here."
