Im not sure what the name of this plant is or the correct way to care for it, so any assistance would be greatly appreciated
Your plant looks like a type of Tillandsia which is an air plant. It likes lots of bright lightVery few houseplants should be placed in direct sun. High light refers only to bright indirect light since direct sun often burns the leaves of indoor houseplants. An area that is too hot and dry encourages Spider Mites and causes blooms to quickly fade. A northern exposure really doesn't provide enough light for high light plants. These plants need to be placed directly in front of an east-facing window, within 1-3 feet of a west-facing window, and within 5 ft. of a south facing window. A high light area has over 300 ft. candles of light.,water it a few times a week (but it should dry out within 4 hours of watering to prevent root rot), and be sure there is good air circulation around it.
