Meet… Catherine Demers!

Catherine Demers is a Warehouse Manager with Standard Electric Supply Co. She is located out of Standard Electric’s Stevens Point location. We asked Catherine 10 Questions to get to know her better!



WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE PART OF WORKING AT STANDARD ELECTRIC?

I feel I am part of something unique and historic. When you think about what it takes for a business to be around for 100 years, it is mind-blowing. Wish I could bottle it and hang around for the 200-year celebration!

WHAT WOULD YOU NAME THE AUTOBIOGRAPHY OF YOUR LIFE?

“Chasing Unicorns” No real reason, it just sounds like a cool title… and I do like unicorns… but I’d never REALLY chase one… right? Because they aren’t real…

WHAT IS THE ONE THING YOU CAN’T LIVE WITHOUT?

Steak. I think God created steak first, and then built the cow around it to keep it fresh. Sort of a walking Tupperware container. 

WHO INSPIRES YOU?

I am inspired by those who are naturally kind. They don’t hesitate to show kindness because in their hearts there is no other alternative but to do so.

WHAT’S SOMETHING MOST PEOPLE DON’T KNOW ABOUT YOU?

I wrote a book and I’m working on another, which is hopefully a lot better than the first!

IF YOU COULD MEET ANYONE, LIVING OR DEAD, WHO WOULD YOU MEET?

Dolly Parton, because she did not forget where she came from, and I think she’s a hoot!

WHAT IS THE BEST MEAL YOU’VE EVER HAD?

Honey Pecan Fried Chicken at “The Pirates House” in Savannah, Georgia. Lovely!

WHAT IS YOUR PERSONAL PHILOSOPHY?

If you can do anything, no matter how small and insignificant you think it is, and just do it well, then you have it over those who can do extraordinary things, and just won’t.

WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE OUTDOOR ACTIVITY?

I love to fish, though I haven’t done much of it this year. I was recently given a fly rod that belonged to my uncle, an avid fisherman, so I’m anxious to try it out.

IF YOU WON THE LOTTERY, WHAT IS THE FIRST THING YOU WOULD DO?

Call 911 because I know I would have a heart attack.
