This entry was posted in Company News and tagged on .


Maria Rodriguez has been a part of our South Mill family for the past 5 years! Maria was born in Mayaguez, Puerto Rico, and came to the Kennett area at the age of 16 to live with her sister and attend Kennett High School. She graduated in 1992 and went to work at Project Salud/ La Comunidad Hispana for several years. Maria worked at the Front Desk, making appointments and attending to the patients. Three years later, she went back to Puerto Rico, married and had 2 daughters. She returned to this area in 2002; worked awhile at Maternal and Child Health; and then returned to Project Salud in 2004. She remained working there until 2012; when she left to come work at South Mill. We are happy that she did! Maria derives satisfaction from giving people the opportunity to work here because she knows what possibilities are available at South Mill for those that are interested and are willing to work hard. She also enjoys the family oriented atmosphere in Human Resources and especially likes all the people that work in the Company. Maria is now married to Danny Cardona who works in Transportation at South Mill as a local driver. They live in Delaware with her 2 daughters, Natalia and Natacha. During her free time, Maria enjoys taking care of her house and loves to dabble in photography. She especially enjoys taking pictures of flowers, plants and anything in nature. Thank you for being a part of our team, Maria!
