Sales Representative, Agribusiness U.S.

I grew up on a farm and know a lot about the hard working people that grow our food. I wanted to stay close to the industry so after University I found the perfect job for me – sales. My job helps farmers increase their crop yields by providing advice on soil health, pests, weeds and more! I enjoy driving through the countryside visiting customers and have built many strong friendships along the way.

Education: I have a degree in Soil Science and have worked 4 years supporting farm-related businesses.

Lab Technician

Lab Technician, Product Innovation

I always excelled in chemistry. I now work for a company that creates and tests products that help plants produce at their optimum level. Not just crop plants, but flowers, grass and turf – basically anything that grows. I have been able to study new seed varieties that will grow in the soil better and have less impact on the surrounding environment. My work makes a difference now as well as in the future.

Education: I have a college-level chemistry diploma and am an avid gardener.

Even though it was a larger company, agriculture is a well-connected industry and everyone is so friendly. My employer supports growth through their products and services and I support their growth by finding employees who want to help feed the world!
