Controller

Janice Hoagland received her B.S. in Accounting from Centenary College in Hackettstown, NJ. Janice has 20+ years of finance & accounting experience but has often felt like she wanted to do more to help people.  That is why she is truly excited to join the Moving Mountains Recovery team to use her financial skills in helping make a difference in the lives of individuals and families struggling with addiction.  Janice is a mother of five, which takes up most of her spare time, but when she does get a moment to herself, she enjoys attending rock concerts, reading, playing board games, thrift store shopping, and traveling.   Janice has taken road trips to 31 US states and has a goal to visit all 49 Continental US States and the 10 Canada Provinces.

Human Resource Specialist

I am excited to be working as a part of the team at Moving Mountains.  I love being back in HR and forming relationships with all the employees and being able to help others.  The novelty of working in Human Resources is every day brings something different. Outside of work I am a mom to one son who is in, college and I am a lifelong resident of Roxbury.  Most of my free time is spent watching his baseball games and if I am not at a field, I like to spend time at the beach and travelling.
