“A passion for produce and a passion for logistics make a perfect balance in my life.”
For the last five years, Tina S. has been learning the ins and outs of the fresh produce industry, as well as the logistics behind it all. Tina has done work with shipping and receiving, truck loading, preparing of customs documents, carrier oversight, and everything in-between. Through her work experiences, Tina has developed a passion for what she does – which has made her the perfect fit for our Logistics team!
NatureFresh™ Farms has a harmony that Tina has never experienced at any other workplace: “There is such a desire here to strive to be the best, not only as a company but personally. There are opportunities to grow and be more than just a person who fills a seat. My team is also supportive – whether it is something in my personal life or something in my career, I know they always have my back. It isn’t one person who creates greatness here – it is a team effort!”
So far, this year has been full of personal growth for Tina: “I think that 2019 has been a great year to really get to know myself and come to understand what really motivates me. I personally believe that if you don’t challenge yourself, then you will never totally know what makes you who you are.”
Tina enjoys spending her free time with her three kids and her husband, which is often at their sporting events! Tina and her family have also been big supporters of local hockey over the last couple of years – they have even billeted young players from Michigan, Holland, and the Czech Republic.
As one of our Logistics Coordinators, Tina works hard every day to secure the best possible rates with the most reliable carriers so NatureFresh™ Farms is getting top-quality service for great value. When our carriers are reliable, that reliability extends from us to our valued customers. Tina knows that when our customers’ needs are consistently met, growth is unstoppable – she is one of the #GrowToPeople!
