Josh Fromme | Owner

Josh graduated from Illinois State University in 2000 with a Bachelor’s Degree in Agriculture Business. After graduation he was determined to give the residents of Springfield, IL a professional, caring, and locally owned lawn care company. Starting off with zero customers, one truck, and himself as the only employee, Josh began providing professional, customer service-based lawn care with one motto guiding him every minute of every day, “Promises Kept." With hard work and dedication, he expanded the company to what it is today. Outside of work Josh enjoys spending time with his wife Beth, and their three children Emma, Reagan, and William. He is a lifelong St. Louis Cardinals fan and can often be found barbecuing something delicious in his backyard.    

 Nick H. | Technical/Marketing Manager

Nick started his journey with Weed Man in 2008 as a salesperson and technician. Nick loves that Weed Man gives people the opportunity for a career, “If you work hard, hit your goals, and grow yourself personally you can do anything within our company.” Following this mission every day, Nick has moved up through the company and was eventually promoted to the technical and marketing manager. A typical day at work consists of analyzing performance and coaching for success. In the evenings, you can find Nick coaching his sons traveling baseball team and on the weekends, he enjoys playing golf with friends and spending time with his wife Erin and their two children, Max and Emma.

Steve S. | Service Manager

Although this looks like Mark Ruffalo, don’t be fooled! Meet Steve. Steve started with Weed Man as a technician and with dedication and hard work, he earned his position as the Service Manager. “I love being outdoors and seeing the transformation of a lawn because of our services.” When Steve is not at work he enjoys fishing, golfing, and spending time with his niece.

Krystal D. | Customer Service Representative

Krystal has been working in veterinary medicine for over 10 years, so switching from dog care to lawn care was a big change but she adjusted quickly. Krystal has a passion for making customers happy. She goes through the day following her favorite quote “kind words do not cost much, yet they accomplish much”. Krystal enjoys showing her dogs in AKC conformation, attending musical festivals and dabbling in photography.

Victoria C. | Data Entry Specialist & Customer Service Representative

Victoria Cummings

Victoria is our very own Alaskan version of Taylor Swift! She is no stranger to being mistaken for the pop country star; she is one that is not a stranger to the outdoors either! When she is not at work you would find her either at an outdoor event or out hiking with her son and her Labrador. Victoria has a passion for numbers and anything detailed-oriented but you may get a brief chance of getting to speak to her over the phone every once in a while providing amazing customer service.

Chrissy F. | Administrative Director

Chrissy Fernandez
Chrissy was born and raised in the Chicagoland area, moving to central Illinois in 2016. It’s here that she settled in with her beau and shortly thereafter her miracle baby, Prudence, was born! After 19 years of infertility, Chrissy’s dream of motherhood had finally come true completely on its own! Chrissy adores dabbling in still life and nature photography, nurturing and raising animals of all kinds. Collecting skulls and everything creepy, she also has a passion for zombies (her dog’s name is even Xombie!) and anything Halloween-related. She came to Weed Man Lawn Care with over a decade of experience in pest control and Administrative Management. While working for a Chicago-based pest control company, she managed nine offices and their admin staff, oversaw all the company’s hiring and management training, and traveled from location to location to perform quality control audits for both office and field staff. When she made the move to the Bloomington/Normal, IL area, she took a temporary customer service position with a local pest control company until she found a position that fit her niche: amazing customer service management and administrative training. Chrissy loves the tremendous opportunities for all employees at Weed Man and thinks that it’s not only a forward-thinking company, but one that values family and its employees’ well-being as much as the bottom line.

Within those travels, David has acquired many years of valuable customer services and administrative experience, most of which were in a retail setting. After a few months working with various other local companies, David found exactly what he was looking for here at Weed Man Lawn Care - an opportunity to grow both professionally and personally. In his spare time and if he is not spending time with his partner and their dog, Buddy, he is probably shopping or cooking.
