Chief Morale Officer at Next Step Living - Katahdin

When not snoozing in one of her strategically placed beds in the office, Katahdin makes her rounds among Next Step Living employees. (Of course, those with treats get more frequent and longer visits, usually punctuated by Katahdin insistently pointing her nose to the spot where she knows the goods are stashed.) This black lab is our chief morale officer. The companion of longtime employee Dave Boettcher, Katahdin is at work just about every day, commuting with Dave between our Boston and New Haven offices.

Dave started with Next Step Living in 2008 as one of our first Next Step Living energy advisors. Through the years, Dave’s green-collar career with the company has included managing our operations, leading the creation of our insulation department and growing our energy advisor team by dozens and dozens. While today Dave is the vice president of operations, traveling to and from our three offices, Katahdin continues to attend to anyone up for a game of catch or in need of a quick nuzzle.
