“One of the greatest parts of working in the tree fruit industry are the exceptional people you get to know, and Katie is the perfect example of this,” said Neal Manly of Regal Fruit International. “Katie’s organization, attention to detail and follow through have made her a ‘go to’ person when ordering trees. She has done a great job in representing both the grower and the nursery and will surely be missed.”

Schuld said of her work at Summit, “The most enjoyable part of my work was getting to know growers. The people in this industry are tremendous, and I’m grateful for the friendships I’ve been fortunate to form.”
