This week we would like to feature Grow West employee Karl Yuki.

Karl’s background of growing up on a farm and around agriculture, spurred him to pursue his career in Ag Science and Management at UC Davis. Karl’s main role is food and site safety at the Walnut Grove location. He is in charge of helping growers get certified with food safety, and making sure growers comply with federal law. On the site safety side of his position, he is making sure the branch is complying with regulatory regulations and keeping fellow employees safe. Karl shared that “learning new things and keeping my mind fresh” is what is the most rewarding part of his position. The growth of his position has pushed him to have flexibility and the willingness to always try something new. 

Grow West is grateful for employees like Karl, that continue to contribute to the company’s success daily. Thank you, Karl, for all you do!

This week we would like to feature Grow West employee Elaine Leggett. 

Elaine brings a rich background in customer service! She joined the Grow West Ukiah team ten years ago after meeting another employee at a preschool their children attended together. Elaine started in a part-time role, but it quickly grew into the full-time position she holds today. Her role encompasses many accounting areas, assisting anyone and everyone throughout our north coast locations and even some event planning! Elaine shared that the most rewarding part of her position is “Being able to answer customer questions and helping them clear any confusion that they may have.” 

When reflecting on her time at Grow West, Elaine expressed her growth but shared that it would not be possible without her supervisor’s support. “Grow West is the most supportive company I have ever worked for; it goes from corporate all the way down. Everyone is just genuinely kind here and wants to see you succeed.” 

Grow West is grateful for Elaine’s daily contribution to our success. Thank you, Elaine, for all you do!

After graduating from @cal_poly with a degree in Agribusiness and Crop Science minor, John started his career at our Dixon Retail location as a PCA. Over the years, he has continued to provide our growers with high-quality service and expertise.
