Employee Spotlight: Ana Carina Buitron


Ana Carina Buitron has been a part of our South Mill family for the past 3 years! As the Benefits Administrator in HR, Ana loves helping people and enjoys the one-on-one contact she has with our employees. She also appreciates learning new things every day. Ana found out about South Mill through her brother, Jose “Pepe” Perez, who at the time was working as a Supervisor in our Packing Division. He is now an Over the Road Driver for us. Ana emigrated to the United States with her husband and young son, from Moroleon, Guanajuato, Mexico, where she had studied Accounting. In Pennsylvania she first worked at another mushroom company in their Packing Department, and then worked for several years at the Migrant Head Start Program, attending to the babies in the Program. She continued taking care of children during the day and studied Cosmetology in the evenings. She worked at a Spa for awhile and then her brother told her about South Mill – and we are glad that he did! Ana became an American Citizen in 2006. When Ana is not working, she loves going to Zumba classes and spending time with her two children – daughter, Chelsea, is 10 and son, Luis Miguel, will be graduating from High School in June.
