At Loma Vista Nursery, we are proud of our plants and the people who work here. Over the next few months, our blogs will spotlight our incredible team members and their role in our nursery.
Leanne is our human resources manager, who started working part time at the nursery in 1991. Leanne is a member of our leadership team and is involved in our nursery’s strategic planning. Her roles include recruiting, payroll, training, ensuring compliance and retaining our employee workforce.
“The thing I love most about my job is that HR is forever growing and changing, ranging from employee expectations to compliance with new laws and legislation,” she says.
Leanne grew up in Covina, California. After moving to Kansas, she realized how lucky she was to enjoy beautiful plants year-round. She appreciates her surroundings, especially when perennials are blooming. Leanne spends a lot of time in her back yard and calls it her little slice of paradise. She enjoys reading, listening to audiobooks and podcasts, and spending time with family.
Loma Vista Nursery, more than just plants
If employees have questions about their 401K or need a dental referral, Leanne has an answer. She has an open-door policy and every employee has her cell phone number.
“I love working with people, all kinds of people. It keeps my job interesting and never boring,” Leanne says.
Lately Leanne’s days and her work are evolving with the changing times. She is involved with an HR peer group through AmericanHort, which meets monthly to share ideas on navigating the new environment.
