“Thank you, Nature Fresh Farms, for helping me make my dreams of Canada come true! I especially want to thank my bosses for the kindness and support they have shown me.”
Fourteen years ago, Lex T. came to Canada to find work and support her family back in Thailand. Lex found her first job in Canada at Nature Fresh Farms, and she is still with us today! Since she first came to Canada, Lex has been reunited with her children, expanded her family, and been able to help her parents financially to build a new home in Thailand!
When she first became a Greenhouse Supervisor thirteen years ago, Lex was one of the only females in that position at our farm: “There were moments I wanted to give up, but then my dad reminded me to be a strong woman. He said, ‘Lex, if you cannot do it, no one can do it. I know you can do it!’ After that, I felt more confident, and with time, I earned the respect of my team and we learned how to work well together.”
We are halfway through 2019, but there is still a lot for Lex to look forward to this year: “I am very excited to return home and see in-person the new home I helped my parents build. I am also looking forward to another great year as a Greenhouse Supervisor as we keep growing and producing more!”
Staying connected to her Thai roots is very important to Lex – between her job, home life, and taking care of her youngest child, Lex still makes time to go to temple on the weekends and offer any support she can to Thai individuals living in our community.
Along with keeping our plants, healthy, Lex knows one of the most important parts of her role as a Greenhouse Supervisor is to treat her team fairly and with respect – her goal is to create an atmosphere where our people feel like they are at home. She knows that, without our team members, we can’t move forward, grow, or find success as a company. Lex is one of our #GrowToPeople!
