This article is part of a series of posts introducing you to the TSS team and the people you may be working closely with.

My name is Eric Bartholomew and I work in TSS’s Midwest office, located in Keokuk, Iowa. I started with TSS in April of 2017. Prior to joining the TSS team, I worked in the industrial staffing industry and also spent some time as a touring musician.

I wear a variety of hats at the Keokuk location. In addition to carrying out the various collections and tests in the office, I teach CPR classes, lead online as well as in-person safety-related training courses, and handle day-to-day clerical duties, such as billing and processing results.

I especially enjoy working to promote TSS and its many services in my community and I like meeting new people this way. I value my role in helping local businesses stay safe and productive. The variety of work and the opportunities to occasionally travel for TSS always keep things interesting.

Outside of the office, I am a busy local musician, playing drums with several area bands, and doing some private teaching. I’m also an active member of the Keokuk Masonic Lodge #29.
