Staff Spotlight: 20 Questions in 2 Minutes with Casey Bevilockway
20 Questions in 2 Minutes is our series of interviews with Management Council staff members. This week’s guest is Casey Bevilockway, Professional Customer Service Associate with the Customer Services and Support Team.
- What kind of music do you like?
Oh, that’s easy—90s. 100%.
- Are you a coffee or tea person?
Actually neither. I’m a Fruit Punch Zero Rockstar person. It’s the worst thing I could possibly drink, and it’s my favorite.
- What’s your favorite thing to do on the weekends?
Any type of home improvement project. Painting is my favorite. I love to paint walls, furniture, anything like that.
- If you could travel anywhere in the world, where would it be?
Anywhere tropical with a beach. I’m not real picky, just anywhere with a beach.
- What’s the most important trend you see today?
Technology is huge right now for everyone, so I would say Zoom meetings to spend time together but not physically together.
- What was your favorite age growing up?
My favorite age was 10-14 because I lived in a neighborhood with a ton of kids. We would play kickball until all hours of the night. It was so much fun that we are trying to get a reunion together to play kickball with our kids.
- How old were you when you started working?
I started babysitting when I was 14. At 16, I got my first real job at Taco Bell. I remember my mom dropping me off for my first day. I couldn’t drive, but I thought I was so cool because I had a job.
- Where did you work before this position?
I was at Perry Local Schools for 17 years. I took the EMIS position as a 22-year-old not knowing what I was getting into.
- How do you deal with work stress?
I’m pretty laid back by nature, but if I’m really stressed, I dive into a project or cleaning. I find something to keep myself busy.
- What’s a favorite family memory?
I would have to say when my entire family took a vacation to Disney when the kids were little. It was the best ever. My kids and my sister’s kids are very close in age. My oldest nephew and daughter were born 9 days apart, and my son and niece were born 10 days apart. My cousin’s son was born 9 days after my oldest nephew. So, we really had so much fun.
- How do you show your family you love them?
I would say spending time with them doing things they like to do even if I don’t like to do what it is they want to do to.
- How did you meet your spouse?
My now mother-in-law was my bus driver when I was 14. She used to tell me she’d like to fix me up with her son, and I’d laugh it off and go on my way. That summer, she introduced me to my husband at a baseball game. I broke up with him 6 months later. I then bumped into him two years later on the exact same day we were originally introduced and in the exact same place. We’ve been together since.
- If you could magically become famous, would you want to?
I don’t think so. I like my privacy and anonymity. I’m okay with that.
- Do you have a favorite type of exercise?
I would have to say playing basketball or softball, but to actually really just exercise, no. I like the competitive side.
- Do you have any phobias? If so, what are they?
Snakes and spiders. My dad laughs at me because if I’m mowing and there’s a snake, I will chase it will the mower.
- What three traits define you?
I would say honesty, loyalty, and friendly.
- What is your personal philosophy?
I always tell my kids, “Tomorrow is a new day. Don’t let today drag through to tomorrow. Don’t pull it forward with you.”
- Describe a win from the work you’ve done.
A win for me is being given the opportunity to lead an amazing customer support team for PEBT!
- How do you define success?
For me, success is more of a personal success to prove to myself that I can do something. If I can do something that I didn’t think I could, that’s success.
- What is your favorite thing about working at the Management Council?
Absolutely the people. Everyone works so well as a team, even across different divisions. And I think that’s really cool that people are always willing to help even if that’s not their realm. You never hear anyone say “that’s not my job,” and I love it.
