Dennise our new Receptionist

Posted by Teresa Frediani | November 14 2017

Meet Dennise Valdovinos she is our new receptionist. You will see her in the front office, waiting to help you and always wearing a smile. Dennise is a new addition and valuable asset to our company because among her many talents she is bilingual which is a HUGE benefit for us and our Spanish speaking customers! She is an adventurous one as she likes doing outdoor sports including hiking, ocean fishing, and last but not least she is a certified scuba diver. Dennise also enjoys traveling and adventuring around California to visit friends. North Valley Ag is excited to have Dennise with us, and hope she enjoys it as much as we appreciate all that she does for our crew and customers!

Meet Danielle Dusina

Posted by Teresa Frediani | October 18 2016

Meet Danielle Dusina. Though her official title here at North Valley Ag is Reception, we think of her as the President of First Impressions as she consistently represents our company in the best possible light whenever anyone walks through the door. Dani does so much more than reception as she takes customer orders for crop protection and fertilizers, handles our billing and invoicing and performs a number of other office functions. Stress is the common thread of these duties and she always handles it with courtesy and class. A life-long North Valley resident, Dani is not just a busy woman in our office. She also attends night classes at Butte College and is aiming for a degree in environmental sciences.
Dani likes doing art and has a passion for kayaking. Another love is her partner, Ryan Patrick, who is a walnut grower and also from Chico. Ryan passed our rigorous potential suitor test with flying colors though he is still on double-secret probation for the next decade or so. Dani has three sisters and no brothers; hence Ryan’s probation as he has the newness factor in his favor. You may know Sister Kori who is an asset at Golden State Farm Credit. Dani’s two other sisters, Dawn and Bre, have blessed their family with six children, four girls and two boys. Dani is a vegetarian which, God bless her, is her loss though we do try to influence her dietary choices from time to time. Thank you for your hard work Dani!
