She has been a valued employee for over three years. Maricela was hired as a gardener and this was her first experience in the landscape industry. She was unsure what to expect when she first started working at Hort Tech, but she quickly noticed that this company and employees were determined to make sure she was properly trained. She recalls her coworkers being the driving force for her to meet her goals as an employee in a new industry. She remembers saying “If they can do it, so can I.” After a year and a half she was promoted to foreman. She has been a foreman for a little over a year and she is now training to be an account manager.
Maricela has lived in the Coachella Valley for over 14 years. Her family is amazed to see how she has advanced and grown in her profession. What Maricela loves most about working in landscaping is seeing how her crew’s efforts are able to enhance and transform properties. She believed that although it can be a physically challenging job, it is very rewarding to be able to see the difference their hard work can make. When she is training new employees she believes that the best thing we can teach them is to work smarter, not harder and always listen and learn from others experiences. We should take every piece of advice or lessons we’ve learned from other employees, foremen, and supervisors and use them to accomplish our goals. Thank you Maricela for your hard work and passion. You are a difference maker in the landscape industry!
