first hired in Ridgewood, I was more than just impressed – I was charged. The level of professionalism and creativity
was overwhelming and I, like a sponge, couldn’t get enough. The same excitement is still with me today. My journey
throughout the years has shown me that few can compare to what this company has to offer in terms of community
involvement and employee appreciation and growth opportunity.

Not just love for others, but self-love as well.
