Miranda Cronk
Inventory Manager

Miranda grew up locally in Lewis County graduating from Copenhagen Central School and currently lives in the town of Watson.

Miranda has worked in the customer service field, and inventory management her whole life, which serves her strengths well as she is detail oriented and enjoys a challenge.  When she saw the open position for the inventory manager with Countryside, she jumped at the opportunity to work in an environment around animals and using her experience with inventory.

Miranda loves all animals.  She is on the board of directors for the Lewis County Humane Society and volunteers her time to help wherever needed.  She dog sits for family, friends, and neighbors as well as takes care of her own furry family consisting of her dog, cat, 3 bunnies, and a hedgehog.  

Away from work, Miranda enjoys spending time with her fur babies, riding her motorcycles, and any outdoor activities including hiking, four wheeling, and snow shoeing.
