Lisa N.

Purchasing

“I chose an industry that will continue to grow, and a company that invests in their people.”

Lisa N. was looking for a new opportunity and a career path when she heard from friends that Nature Fresh Farms had a great reputation. Taking a leap of faith and making a career change, she began her new position in the Purchasing department in July of 2021.

Originally from Leamington, Lisa remembers working on her uncle’s cucumber farm where she would help to pick and pack the product. In 2008 she moved to Toronto where she took Business Marketing for Fashion at Humber College. Working in retail at the time she climbed the ladder to Store Manager, but after eight years she decided to move closer to family and start a new career.

Lisa immediately felt welcomed into the Nature Fresh Farms team. “This company has an amazing sense of community. You see the positivity and friendly faces everywhere you go; it makes you feel like you’re in the right place.”

With a love for the outdoors, you will find Lisa spending most of her free time hiking and exploring nature; that is, when she isn’t shopping!
As Purchasing Clerk, Lisa’s most important responsibilities include detailed and accurate documentation of purchases, cost analysis reporting, and sourcing various items for the best quality and price.

Lisa is one of our #GrowtoPeople!
