SuCo Spotlight February ’24 – Tonya Hansen

This month SuCo wants to spotlight one of our rockstar accountants, Tonya Hansen. Tonya joined the SuCo team three years ago and has made an amazing impact since the day she joined. She’s always willing to jump in and take initiative on all things accounting. She’s big on improving processes and making everyone’s lives easier. We are incredibly fortunate to have Tonya on our SuCo team.

What attracted you to join SuCo, and how has your experience matched your expectations so far? 

I had worked in a similar industry previous to joining SuCo and enjoy the fast pace environment where things are constantly evolving and changing. I’d say that aspect as well as my direct manager are what drew me to join the team at SuCo. My expectations have definitely matched the experience so far considering I joined during a pandemic which had its own way of forcing change and quick adaptation. It has been interesting to see the ways in which the company has evolved in just 3 short years!

What’s the most challenging aspect of your job, and how do you tackle it? 

I think the most challenging aspect of my job is keeping all the small details, all the random requests, and all the nuances straight. There are so many things that happen in a day that need to be remembered. I manage this by physically writing things down and making lists and also utilizing my calendar for reminders. 

If you were stranded on a deserted island, what three items would you want to have with you? 

A book (can I trade it in each week for a new one? haha), coffee, and I suppose it would be responsible to have a utility knife of some sort.

What’s one skill or hobby you’d love to learn in the future? 

I’ve wanted to learn how to golf for a few years now. I finally snagged a set of clubs off Marketplace and plan to take some lessons this spring/summer.
