After a brief stint in Alberta, Rebecca moved home to Moncton, NB where she finished her degree at Crandall Universtiy and began working for Cavendish Farms. Cavendish Farms is an international frozen food manufacturing company, based in Dieppe, NB, with operations across Canada and the US. They sell their product in both Food Service and Retail markets globally.
She began her role in Sales as a coordinator, working closely with the Sr. VP of Sales as well as a team of 50 salespeople from all over the world. A few years later, she was promoted to Sales Development Supervisor, reporting to and supporting directly the Sr. VP of Sales & Marketing. After only a year, it was time for a new challenge, and this in the exciting realm of International Business Development. With accounts as far as Iceland, it was a very busy time in her career. She has since moved into the Fresh Produce side of the business as an Account Manager focusing on North America.
Rebecca, Moncton, NB native, comes from a family of Rotarians; her late grandfather was a Rotarian for over 20 years and her farther, Greg, uncle Bruce, and cousin are all Rotarians in different clubs in the Moncton area. She is very close with her family and friends and believes in maintaining a work-life balance. Her interests include hiking, traveling, food and wine, and contributing to the community through volunteer work. Some of the more recent philanthropic endeavors she has taken part in include: Junior Achievement – in-class program delivery, Partners Assisting Local Schools (PALS) one-on-one student mentor, Team Captain for Canadian Cancer Society’s Relay for Life, and of course all of the wonderful opportunities through her Rotary family!
