Meet Barb Kearin – Sass Construction’s Bookkeeper

Wednesday, February 22nd, 2012

Barb Kearin came to Sass Construction in 2000. With over 30 years as a full charge bookkeeper, Barb thoroughly and thoughfully manages the day-to-day accounting responsibilities of Sass projects.


Name: Barbara Kearin

Job title: Bookkeeper

How long have you been with Sass: I started in February of 2000.

What do you like best about your job: I like the remodeling industry, and am always anxious to see the “before” and “after” of the jobs.

Name one thing you miss about being a kid: I loved swimming, jump roping, and doing anything at all with my Grandparents!

What kind of activities do you like to do for fun: I like being a hockey, soccer and baseball Grandma. I’m in a Stamping Group, my husband and I are in a Card Club, and I’ve just discovered Words With Friends!

What do you like best about living in Minnesota: Without a doubt, the change in seasons. We’ve traveled to many nice places in the U.S. but I think Minnesota is as pretty as any we’ve seen.

If you could plan a trip anywhere in the world, where would you go: The Scandinavian Countries (and then just hop on over to Ireland).
