Our Team » Cara Theiss
Cara grew up in a military (Air Force – Aim High! Fly- Fight-Win!) and German / American family, living the first 20 years of her life in Germany before she moved to the States. After moving to the States her career flourished from Administration Management to now a fulfilling and inspiriting career in Marketing Management.“Until one has loved an animal, a part of one’s soul remains unawakened.”
She also manages the internal database functions and offers support in Information Systems. No matter where she has worked, diversity in a job is must! There’s never too much you can learn at any job. Cara takes great pride in being a vital go-to person where I she can assist the team when they need help.
Staci Hicks asked Cara in 2005 if she would be interested in joining the team. Even after only 6 weeks working for a local remodeling company, it was a no-brainer to make the transition to this new opportunity. She said her farewells and has been with The Roofing and Remodeling Company since. Cara brings with her experience in the Administrative and Marketing field since 1993 and has a Business Degree in Marketing from Christopher Newport University.
She thoroughly enjoys the versatility of both her own responsibilities and that of the team. She says, “Everyone is talented in more ways than one and that is what makes this company so great! Even though we each have our normal day-to-day responsibilities under our job title, we don’t hesitate to help each other out where we can, even if that means stepping out of what you are only expected to do. This helps us work better and closer as a team as well as become cross-trained in other departments.”
A vital part of Cara’s responsibilities is communicating with the sales staff to provide a price prospective client with a proposal in a timely manner. She also gives every customer a chance to let the company know how they did as a whole after job completion. Getting feedback from customers and prospective customers is a good way to find out if anything is broken and fixing it.
Outside of work, she enjoys the company of her two loving Cocker Spaniels, Jafare & Joey. She has always had a huge heart for animals and that only continues to grow. She also love to stay fit, walking trails, and the mountains.
I have relied on The Roofing Company for all work on my home’s roof since 2006. Brian Chalsma is an absolute professional who is passionate and meticulous about his work.
