“I love my job!” is what Cassie Ivy said when asked what she thought about working at Airways Freight.

Previous to her position at Airways Freight, Cassie did the bookkeeping for local furniture stores in the area, along with bank errands and mail pickup. She had passed by Airways on many occasions and had always wondered what it would be like to work there. After hearing about Airways through local gossip, she applied and in July of 2003, was given a position in the Accounting Department where she has been ever since. What she loves most about her job is the camaraderie she shares with her close co-workers in Accounts Payable. They have grown to become very good friends and have formed a family bond with each other.

With her father in the Navy, Cassie was born at Portsmouth Naval Base in Virginia. After his retirement in 1992, her family moved to Arkansas. Cassie is the oldest of three siblings, she has a younger sister and a brother.

Outside of work, Cassie loves to spend time with her three girls, Kenya who is 19, Kaitlyn 16, and Cicely who is 5. She likes to be around the water and enjoys swimming whenever she gets the chance. Cassie is also an avid roller-skater and took lessons as a kid. Some of her hobbies include reading, astrology and she has a great interest in Science. She also loves sign language and has been teaching herself.

Cassie has a big heart, she never misses a chance to greet people in the morning and her coworkers have described her as an excellent listener. She always comes to work with a smile on her face and a great attitude to boot. One of her favorite quotes is by Mother Theresa “Let us always meet each other with a smile, for the smile is the beginning of love”.

A champion of movie quotes, Cassie can recite any line from the movie “Fried Green Tomatoes” as well as “Steel Magnolias”!

She is kind, hardworking and helpful. She takes pride in her work and pays close attention to detail. Cassie has always been good at numbers and she will be punching them in for Airways for a very long time!
