Employee Spotlight: Betty Atkinson

Here we are again, sitting down with one of our team members to learn more about them. We love learning about our team! This month we are talking to Betty Atkinson, an accounting clerk for our Chevrolet location. Betty has been with the company for over 10 years now. We sat down and gave Betty our usual “spotlight” questions and here is what we learned…

VanDevere: Hi Betty, thank you for taking the time to sit with us. We will start off easy… What is the best thing about your job?

Betty: Being able to work each day with my daughter, Kelly McVey

VDV: So many employees work with their family members. What a great feeling to get to see your daughter during the week and working side by side with her. It takes the VanDevere family to a new level! What is the best thing about VanDevere?

Betty: They are truly a caring family. Everyone is always friendly and curious about how you are doing.

VDV: It is a great feeling to work with such caring co-workers. In three words, how would you best describe VanDevere?

Betty: Caring, Friendly, Compassionate

VDV: Compassionate is a great word to describe the team! It is how we work so well as a team and with our customers. What do you like to do when you are not at work?

Betty: I love to attend Southern Gospel Concerts

VDV: Great activity. Concerts in general are always a great time. What inspires you?

Betty: Knowing I can come to work where what you do is appreciated.

VDV: It is a powerful thing knowing that you are appreciated and that your work makes a difference. Where is your favorite place to travel?

Betty: Anywhere warm and close to the beach

VDV: I agree. There is no better feeling than sun on your skin and sand under your feet. Now, do you have a favorite place to eat?

Betty: I love seafood and steak!

VDV: Surf and Turf! Always a great combo. I personally believe that being on the beach and somewhere warm with fresh seafood cannot be beat. Do you have a dream car that may take you to such restaurants or vacation spots?

Betty: When I was younger I believe it would have been a red Corvette, but now I am much older so my red Equinox wins

VDV: You are working at the right store then! You cannot go wrong with an Equinox. Happy to hear that you kept the red color in mind! A big thank you to you, Betty, for taking the time to talk with us today. We appreciate your hard work over the past 10 years of employment with The Vandevere Bunch!
