Leigh was raised, and remains active, on her family’s 200 sow farrow-to-finish, cash crop, and market garden operation West of Ottawa, near Kinburn, Ontario. She graduated from the University of Guelph with a Bachelor of Science in Agriculture in 2011 and received her Certified Crop Advisor designation in 2013. She has had extensive sales and agronomy experience working directly with growers across Ontario through her previous sales agronomist roles at Sharpe Farm Supplies in Guelph, and at Parrish and Heimbecker near Kincardine. Most recently, Leigh was travelling and working in an orchard in Central Otago, New Zealand.
In her spare time, she enjoys being active with 4H, Ontario Soil and Crop, curling and travelling.
Leigh looks forward to helping growers with product positioning and crop planning, problem solving and overall grower and dealer interaction.
