Leah Van der Heide
Greenhouse & Nursery Sales Specialist
• Started in the industry as a grower and successfully finished her first crop — 400,000 cyclamen. “I didn’t kill them … and they looked pretty good, too!”
• Works with consultants, distributors and end users in greenhouses and nurseries to solve weed, disease, and insect pest problems. She is also bilingual. “Becoming fluent in Spanish … Handsdown that is the best and most important thing I’ve accomplished.”
Leah performs improvisational comedy. After college, she spent a month in Scotland performing daily at the International Fringe Festival.
“Titanic” is Leah’s favorite movie. “It’s got everything you could ever want in a movie: love, action, suspense, historical references … and Leonardo DiCaprio!”
