“I decided to start fresh and get into the agricultural side of quality.”
Born and raised in Windsor, ON, Alexa O. attended college and worked in the auto industry before finding her way to fresh produce. Alexa studied Police Foundations at St Clair College, and she still has a dream of one day becoming a police officer. About two years ago, Alexa moved to Kingsville, ON, and in July 2019, she started as a member of our Quality Control team!
Having worked on the quality side of things in the auto industry, Alexa was interested in applying her skills in a new work environment: “I was already working in quality in the auto industry, but I wanted a change. I had to learn quickly and work diligently to adapt to the new work environment. But no matter what industry it is that you work in quality, you will always be working under some pressure.”
One of the things Alexa likes best about Nature Fresh Farms is how close our team members are with one another: “I really like that I have made some great friends here. I find Nature Fresh Farms has so many friendly people and it just makes it inviting to come to work every day.”
Much of Alexa’s spare time is spent hanging out with friends and family, as well as riding and training her thoroughbred horse! Alexa exercises thoroughbred racehorses during the race season from April to November.
Alongside the rest of the Quality Control team, Alexa reports product quality to all necessary members of our team so everyone stays updated on product quality status. Alexa also pays close attention to little detail to ensure only the best produce leaves our Distribution Center. Alexa is one of our #GrowToPeople!
