First job? Waitressing, in high school. My parents own the bowling center in Northfield, and I grew up waitressing there.
Free time? I like to spend it with my husband and our kids. We like to golf and exercise together; we travel and hike. Our favorite hiking spots are Tettegouche and Gooseberry Falls state parks. Anywhere there’s water and rocks with three boys, it’s good.
NH&C is getting a new look! We are happy to unveil our new logo, which will begin appearing on NH&C materials starting in November. It will serve as a cornerstone for our identification as we move forward. You’ll see it on everything from letterhead and forms to building signs and ads.
This new look gives us a consistent brand across all of our divisions. Every place people see our brand, they’ll begin to see the scale of our organization and how all our services tie together: One independent system with a shared sense of purpose.
