What do you like most about working at Northland?

Working with our team members on a daily basis, our “internal customers”, is what I like most about working at Northland. I’m confident that in a continually evolving industry, there is nothing our team cannot accomplish, together.

The flexible, fun, and family-oriented environment is one that enables and encourages everyone to see each challenge as an opportunity to grow, learn and to achieve a new level of greatness at the end of every day. It’s my privilege to be part of the Northland team.

Life Outside of Northland:

I grew up in Utica, NY. I now live in Rome, with my husband, Daniel. We enjoy boating in the summer and snowmobiling in the winter.
