“Getting this job and taking life into my own hands has been one of the most accomplishing and defining moments of my life.”
Although Julia W. was born in Leamington, ON and spent the first nine years of her life in Harrow, ON, she moved with her family to Saskatchewan and enjoyed the simplicity of prairie life until she was 19. It was then that she took a bold step and moved back to the Leamington area and started a fresh chapter of her life. This is also when she joined our Quality Control team!
It was just over 2 years ago, quickly after she moved back to Ontario, that Julia started working with our team: “I got a job here in December 2017 and have been a member of the family ever since. I was determined to make a name for myself and make an impact on something and be part of a community. I wanted to grow as a person and develop skills that would help me pursue future opportunities.”
Family is the first word that comes to mind when Julia thinks about the Nature Fresh Farms team: “I spend more time with the people I work with than my home family. Over the last 2 and some years, I have built incredibly strong relationships and befriended many of the people here. I built a family at work who I know I will remain close with for many years to come.”
When she isn’t at work, Julia enjoys spending quality time with friends and family, longboarding, reading, watching movies, and writing creatively. Julia believes she has been blessed beyond measure, which is why she is looking forward to whatever else life has to offer her in 2020!
As a member of our Quality Control team at our Sales Distribution Center, Julia is in constant communication with various departments to keep everyone up to date on the quality of our produce. Julia is tasked with consistently reporting on product quality and ensuring only the best Tomatoes, Peppers, and Cucumbers leave our facilities. Julia is one of our #GrowToPeople!
