“I believe that the only way to grow is through continuous learning.”
Tere V. moved to the United States from Mexico when she was a teenager and her parents were looking for new work opportunities. Her father has always worked in agriculture, so he encouraged Tere to explore it herself – which is what led her to work at NatureFresh™ Farms in our Human Resources department in Delta, OH!
Since starting at our farm, Tere has had many new and rewarding experiences: “I have learned a lot since I started at NatureFresh™ Farms, and I have come to really love my job! Every day I get to experience a variety of work, grow my skills, interact with different people and cultures, and see transformation in the crops!”
While continuous learning is a big part of her work-life, Tere also loves finding learning opportunities outside of the company: “I am constantly taking courses at the University of Toledo, and in addition to formal education, I am always looking for learning experiences where I can explore new cultures while I travel!”
In addition to spending time with her family, Tere loves travelling and photography – for her, these are a form of therapy. She has also been a proud volunteer for a nonprofit organization that provides legal services in Northwestern Ohio and beyond for the last 10 years.
As a Human Resources Generalist at our greenhouse in Delta, OH, Tere is responsible for supporting employee orientation, development, and training, as well as tracking attendance, providing support to employees, and other clerical duties as needed. Tere is one of the #GrowToPeople!
