Valerie VanOosturm – Secretary
B Commerce 1997 Saint Mary’s University. For the past 18 years working at Just Us! Coffee Roasters Co-op in Customer Service & Orders; President of the Just Us! Coffee Roasters Co-operative Board during a time a transition. I am interested in being involved in an organization committed to promoting and financially supporting agriculture and a sustainable future for Nova Scotia. A key to this is providing a local food supply for Nova Scotians. Born and raised in Grafton, NS on a family farm, we raised beef cattle and grew apples. I worked with my father and brothers on the farm until I left to attend university. I have always wanted to get back into the agriculture sector locally and this opportunity allows me to use both my personal experience, my passion for farming and my work with Just Us! working with small farmers globally.
