ROHNERT PARK, Calif., Feb. 10, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- The deadly Northern California wildfires last October made national headlines after several dozen people lost their lives and thousands of homes and buildings burned to the ground. The fires were some of the most destructive the state has ever seen. As the national headlines fade, local residents are still slowly picking up the pieces of their lives. Ameritech Financial, a document preparation company that helps federal student loan borrowers apply for and navigate repayment plans and forgiveness programs, is headquartered in Rohnert Park, California, near the center of the devastation. The company is growing and prides itself on hiring talented locals to the Ameritech Financial team.
"We were absolutely rocked by these wildfires last October," said Tom Knickerbocker, executive vice president of Ameritech Financial. "Several of our employees were directly affected by the fires. And all of us were affected in some way. But as the cleanup continues, and the rebuilding begins, we're happy to be hiring and employing local professionals."
Situated in Sonoma County, California, Rohnert Park is about 50 miles north of San Francisco. Some of the most shocking scenes from the October wildfires were in nearby Santa Rosa, the county's biggest city, where entire neighborhoods were reduced to ashes.
"The resilience of our community, including our employees, is incredible," said Knickerbocker. "As Ameritech Financial grows, being able to offer quality jobs to this community that has showed its caliber is a good feeling."
