Cindy Milewski, Office Manager

Cindy has been working with Mark Sousa since January, 1998 taking care of the accounts and employees associated first with landscaping or hardscaping and now with water gardens and features.  She stays behind the scenes and balances the customers, vendors and employees needs while getting her tasks done.  With her degree in Business Administration, the other days that she is not at Action Water Gardens, Cindy is usually managing other clients' businesses.  When she is not working, Cindy likes to spend her time at the shore on the water in a boat or kayak.

It is his goal as well as all other staff members here at Action Water Gardens to make sure that all of our customers' questions are answered to the fullest. 

" I would like all of our customers to be able to go back home to their pond or water feature with the knowledge and confidence that will enable them to tackle any given aquascaping project." 

Water quality, fish health, and making your dream water feature a reality are our main priorities. Adam will make sure you leave our store worry free, and with all of the information you need to run and maintain a successful water feature.
