Our People

Maria Nicastro is an Accountant at Westbrook Greenhouses. For just over three years, Maria has been a diligent, detail oriented and passionate employee who has challenged prevailing assumptions and suggested better approaches, especially when working to reduce and ensure speedy collections of receivable balances, implementing a credit limit process and moving customers payments from cheques to EFT’s. Maria is a consummate professional and delivers superb service and results in all aspects of her role. Overall, Maria is quietly confident and cares intensely about her internal customers as well as Westbrook’s external customers, which earns respect from all of those people that work closely with her.

We can not thank Maria enough for being such an enthusiastic and optimistic employee. Thank you, Maria, for everything you have done and continue to do!

“The best part of working at Westbrook is the culture. Westbrook has encouraged me to grow in the areas that I love, and I am given the opportunity to take on new challenges and to be part of such a great group of people. I am very proud to be part of this team, the company’s growth and I am looking forward to growing with a company that has so much to offer.”
