Carla Tevis: Fun Facts
What’s your family like?
My husband, Bruce, and I live on a farm in Hornick, Iowa, with our house cats – and no! I won’t tell you how many kitties we have. (laughs) We also have sheep and goats on the farm.
What do you do in your spare time?
I call myself a junker. I love to go to rummage sales and auctions and find treasurers. I also have a couple of booths here in Sioux City at consignment stores where my brother and I sell our recycled /upcycled treasures. I love repainting furniture that can’t be fixed to create something brand new!
Do you have a personal mantra or motto?
“Always be kind.”
“Raiders of the Lost Ark” – you can’t go wrong with Harrison Ford.
I have two favorite authors, David Balducci and Nora Roberts.
Favorite Band or Musician?
My favorite band is BonJovi, but I just love Rick Springfield.
If your best friend had to describe you in three words, what would they be?
Caring. Creative. Dependable. And yes, I did ask her when I was preparing for this interview. 🙂
And if you had to describe yourself in three words, what would they be?
Soft hearted fool. (laughs) I have a very soft heart for animals and have a very hard time not adopting more!
Explain your role at CW Suter Services:
I work in the Accounting Department with Accounts Payable taking up most of my work time. I also help out with Service Billing and the Computer Software.
How long have you been at CW Suter Services?
I have been at Suter for 13 years as of July 19th, 2017. Boy how the time flies.
What part of your job do you find most challenging?
Getting all the work done before I head home at night. I do love being busy, but that doesn’t always make it less challenging – I guess that means “challenging” isn’t a negative thing for me. I enjoy a good challenge!
What’s the most enjoyable part of your job?
I like being busy all day, and helping other Suter employees with their questions.
