Barry Van Deusen graduated from Oliver Wolcott Technical High School in 2007.  He studied Plumbing, Heating and HVAC in the trade school and graduated with a high school diploma.  From there he has been working in the field ever since.  In the past 15 years he has accomplished many certifications and takes advantage of any continuing education he can. He likes to learn new things whenever he gets a chance and  to be in the know of new products.  He has recently passed his contractors test which allowed him to start Northwest Plumbing and Mechanical, LLC.  His primary goal was to start a business of his own, to be able to keep this trade alive, and hopefully train the future generations.  Barry lives with his partner Kira that helps out in the business as well and keeps him in line, along with their animals.
