    After a little hiatus I am back at Freedom and excited for what the future has to offer! In total I have worked for Freedom Nissan for 9 wonderful years. When I am not at work I enjoy playing, watching and basically anything that has to do with poker. In addition I enjoy spending time with my Chihuahua and cooking with my friends.

    When I am here at Freedom I enjoy working with customers to help them find the best deal I can. I also enjoy the family atmosphere that we have created.

    My first car was a Toyota Corolla.

    I started in the automobile business 30 years ago, as a rookie sales person, and in 1995 my wife and I decided to move from Boston to Vermont. Since then I have become co-owner at Freedom Nissan where I pride myself on making both customers, and my staff, happy.  When I'm not at the dealership, I enjoy spending time with my wife, children and grandchildren.

    My first car was a 1973 Chevrolet Monte Carlo.

    I am originally from Clintonville, NY but since my move to Burlington, in May 2016, I'm happy to call VT my home. It has been a pleasure to work for Freedom where I have had the chance to  make some great friendships.

    When I am not working I enjoy traveling with family.  I love the Ocean and look forward to spending as much time as I can near it!

    My first car was a 1981 Chevy Chevette.

    I am lucky that I get the chance to work with my two sons Drew and Jeremy. It's a family within a family!

    My first car was a 1952 Oldsmobile... and yes I looked fly riding around in it.

    I am from Calais, Vermont and have been working at Freedom since August 2016. Though I am newer to the dealership my excitement for the product and our customers has made the transition smooth. I love having the opportunity to meet new people on a regular basis. It has been a reward to be able to make customers' dreams come true when handing them the key to their new car.

    When I am not at the dealership I enjoy riding motorcycles, exercising, and working on cars.

    My first car was a Saab 9-3.

    Years prior to settling in Vermont I was cruising around the northeast in my 1964 Chevy Malibu coupe. I lived in New York, Maine, and New Hampshire before deciding on Vermont as my permanent home. 


    When I am out of the dealership, where I have been working since '08, I enjoy playing music, road biking and getting crazy with a game of backgammon.

    I have always enjoyed the great inventory we have at Freedom, and of course the people I work with and those who enter the dealership.

    I am originally from my mom's belly but have moved out and currently live right here at Freedom Nissan! In the winter, I love clearing the snow off the cars with my fellow employees, or as I like to call them friends. I have been here for about four cycles around the sun and couldn't imagine any where I'd rather work.


    When I am not here (which is a rarity) I enjoy snowboarding and dancing to EDM until the sun comes up. I have always loved to dance, and grew up performing both tap and interpretive.


    My first car was a Chrysler 300.

  • John Richling
    Parts Manager

    I am from this little town called Burlington Vermont and have been working in the parts department, at Nissan, since 2014. Working at Freedom has many benefits. The ownership is committed to making Freedom a friendly place to work which makes coming to work a pleasure. The people here have become my second family and I would not want to work anywhere else!

    I have an affection for sports. So when I am not at the dealership I am bowling, playing baseball, and fishing. I also love to camp and search for swimming holes around Vermont.

    The first car I drove was a 1987 Buick Somerset.

    I was born and raised in Colchester, Vermont. Currently I live in Richmond with my husband, daughter, and 3 fur babies.

    When I am not at work I enjoy spending time with family, eating maple syrup, and the fall! Though I don't enjoy cleaning off my car in the winter, the first snowfall is something I look forward to every year.

    After being here for two years I am happy to work at a place that has become a home away from home and my second family.
