Thanksgiving is a time to be with family and friends, eat too much turkey, and, maybe, finally, get your hands on your Grandma’s famous pumpkin pie recipe.

As we take some time off from work this week to enjoy our loved ones, we want to say how grateful we are for our amazing co-workers, clients and important people in our lives.

  • Gerry Heidenreich Sr. Solutions Architect

    Gerry's Dog Bailey“As a relatively new Northwoodian, I am blessed and thankful to be part of a team with such diverse backgrounds and interests. Northwoods has a climate for learning that is distinctive, internally and with our clients, that keeps things interesting, fun and engaging. And Bailey is thankful she doesn’t have to spend the day alone at home.”

  • Rachel Carter Senior Digital Marketing Strategist 

    Rachel's Family“This year, I’m thankful for my husband, friends, and family who have made my year so wonderful. They’ve also helped keep a smile on my face as I navigate the terrible twos with my son. I am also thankful my son is so cute, because it has made dealing with the terrible twos a lot easier.”

  • Greg Eggold Senior Web Applications Developer 

    Greg's Grandson LJ“I am thankful for my grandson LJ and for being able to spend a lot of time with him this past year. We took him to lots of fun places including parks, a dinosaur museum, the Jelly Belly Factory, and Bay Beach Amusement Park.”

  • Jenna Dehn Digital Marketing Strategist

    “I am thankful that my 1 year old loves being upside down so much that it is the cure to all temper tantrums. Apparently it is impossible to stay mad when you are having too much fun.”

  • Ed Ahrenhoerster Production Director

    “I regularly hear friends and family say things like “I hate my job” or “I don’t want to go to work tomorrow”. In all my years at Northwoods I have never once felt that way. Having a job I love is something I am very thankful for.”

  • Matt Karge Business Development Manager 

    “I’ve got all sorts of reasons for being thankful this year. I work with a group of people who work hard and also know how to have fun along the way. I have two boys that face all of the challenges of life with intelligent responses. I have a wonderful wife who is my soulmate and best friend. Finally, I have a family that is healthy and happy.”

  • Amanda Koehler Senior Digital Marketing Strategist

    Amanda Koehler Family“I am thankful for the two greatest joys in my life: my kids. Every day they fill me with wonder, laughter, and love. Also, for my husband who keeps me sane and always takes care of the laundry.”

  • Barrett Wainscott Paid Search & Digital Marketing Specialist

    Barrett and Erin

    “I'm full of thankfulness this Thanksgiving! I'm thankful for my beautiful wife Erin who always keeps a smile on my face. I'm thankful to Northwoods for bringing me into their family this year and making me feel as if I've been here for years. I'm thankful for my family, friends and everyone in my life who has molded me into who I am today. Last, but definitely not least, I'm thankful for all of the talented clients I get to work with each and every day.”

  • Jon Kuhl Chief Programmer and Software Architect

    “Despite the burden of grief at losing my wife, I'm thankful to God for the comfort, wisdom, and encouragement He provides through family, friends, and coworkers. The words of Jesus are trustworthy: 'Blessed are those who mourn, for they will be comforted.'”
  • Aaron Stearns Developer

    “I am thankful for working in an office where people bring their dogs”
  • Tom Pappas Senior Management, Business Development

    Tom Pappas Life Cards“I am thankful for my wife, children, grandchildren, my good health, a warm and safe home, food on the table, fresh water, gardens, music, the ability to travel and the best place to work, EVER; Northwoods!”

  • Katelyn Staaben Digital Marketing Strategist

    Katelyn Staaben“This year and every year I am thankful for the family and friends that I am lucky enough to have in my life. But this year specifically, I am also very thankful for the opportunity to travel! I’ve enjoyed several great trips this year and am looking forward to experiencing more exciting places in 2019.”

  • Amanda Aalpoel Developer

    “I’m thankful for my family, friends, and getting to hang out with my coworkers’ dogs.”

  • Dana Grennier Account Director

    Dana and August“I am grateful that I am able to spend more time with my son. Northwoods made that possible! This year has been full of milestones and I didn’t have to miss a single one because I have the flexibility to manage my work schedule. Time with family is so precious and I feel very fortunate to have this blessing as a part of my everyday life.”

    And last, but not least, the whole team at Northwoods is thankful for you, our clients and community, who challenge us, support us and make our work meaningful every day.

Happy Thanksgiving!
