Meet Absolute Roofing: Traci Reeves
Meet Absolute Roofing
Over the next several weeks we will be doing a series profiling the different team members at Absolute Roofing. You’ll get to know us a little bit better and see us as so much more than roofing contractors.
What is your role?
What do you do at Absolute Roofing?
A lot of things. Most of it consists of things behind-the-scenes including (but not limited to): Handling all accounts receivable, sending out invoices, processing payroll/commissions, documenting expenses (read: hunting down receipts), and overall ensuring that the office is running smoothly. I primarily manage anything that deals with money- either incoming or outgoing.
Additionally, I keep inventory on all of our office supplies including paper, paper products, snacks, and Poopourri.
What’s your favorite thing about your job?
I love the flexibility and freedom this jobs gives me. I’m able to be a mom and be there for my kids when they need to be places or when they need me to be places. As it relates to the job, I love that I can bring order. I can arrange and organizes things and processes without any red tape in the way.
How did you get involved with Absolute Roofing?
I had known Keith for several years before working here. Before this role, I was previously working at another company for 7 years and in charge of their financials. When that job ended, Keith gave me a call about a position open at Absolute Roofing. I never specifically did financials for any roofing contractors in Omaha, however, I was open to learning about the insurance side of things.
We went out for coffee one day and talked about the role. I was offered the job, accepted, and have been here ever since.
Tell us about your family:
I’ve been married to my husband, Justin, for 23 years. We have 5 kids ranging from 12-20 including 2 boys and 3 girls. We’re involved in our church where my husband serves as a youth leader and I help with the financials (surprise!).
What is your favorite food?
I love Panera.
What is your favorite Movie or TV Show?
Last Man Standing with Tim Allen.
What is your favorite place that you’ve been to and why?
Estes Park because I love nature. The mountains, trees, and water are just breathtaking.
What’s something about Absolute Roofing that most people don’t know?
Paul and Keith sincerely care about us and are involved in our lives.
