Casey Crouse is one of our Checkmate Conversion Trainers. Her specialty is helping recyclers who are new to Checkmate. When recyclers first begin using Checkmate, Casey visits their business for a few days to help them convert their inventory data and to learn their new system. Casey hasn't always been in the software and auto recycling industries - before working at Car-Part, she was a chiropractor for 13 years. She was an associate chiropractor for 8 years, and then owned her own business for 5. As a chiropractor, Casey has always loved helping people and improving others' day-to-day lives. Training them to use their new Car-Part software fits right in with that passion!
When Casey isn't on the road helping recyclers, she spends time with her family and loves to dive into a good book!
