Emma Lackey grew up in rural Ontario, Canada and soon discovered her deep passion for agriculture. In her early teens she started working part-time on a dairy farm; soon she was spending every weekend and summers on the farm.
“By the time I graduated from a prestigious Canadian university, I already knew I wanted a future in agriculture,” shared Lackey. She moved home and started working full-time on the farm, milking, feeding, cropping, fixing and loving every minute of it. Lackey wanted to stay involved in ag while also putting her degree to use.
She learned about AgCareers.com from many of the farm-related publications she regularly read. “The AgCareers.com site was easy to navigate and I checked often for job postings that interested me. I was excited to discover a site that could connect me with so many opportunities in the agricultural industry,” added Lackey.
She found a job posting for a Marketing Communications Coordinator on AgCareers.com with Sevita International. SEVITA is dedicated to developing and supplying food-grade NON gmo soybean and Certified Seed of superior quality and value.
“The AgCareers.com application process was clear and easy,” said Lackey. She was soon hired for this new position and is excited to be part of a growing agricultural company.
In this position, Lackey acts as a liaison with Sevita’s outside advertising company, contributes to publications, and organizes meetings and events. “My favourite aspect of my new position is that I can finally connect my passion for agriculture to a voice that speaks for growers in the industry,” shared Lackey. “Any job where I can write and spend my afternoons waist deep in soybeans is a dream for me,” added Lackey.
“AgCareers.com was a great tool to help connect me with this opportunity, and I feel very fortunate to be where I am today,” concluded Lackey.
