Lesley Rogers is Juniper’s newest team member! She's a marketing strategist, with a love for problem-solving.
A true Newfoundlander to her core, Lesley was born in scenic Twillingate and raised in St. John's. After graduating from high school, she started exploring the rest of Canada and moved to Edmonton, Alberta. While in Edmonton she landed a job selling cars, it was here Lesley realized she had a love for sales. Through selling cars she learned many beneficial skills, and still carries them with her today.
Lesley's itch for travel got her moving again and she ended up Montreal. After a year of exploring and working on her French, Lesley moved home to help out her family’s business Iceberg Quest Ocean Tours. During her time working out of Twillingate, NL, she managed the boat tour and a seasonal restaurant. Iceberg Quest sparked Lesley's interest in business and marketing and she knew she had to learn more. Lesley applied for the Business program at the College of the North Atlantic (Marketing) and got accepted in 2014.
After graduating, Lesley focused on growing her social media skills. She took courses in Digital & Social Media Strategy which helped grow her knowledge on the subject. Building relationships with businesses and growing their online presences is how she began the path she is on now.
Quick thinking and idea generating comes naturally to Lesley and she credits it from being raised in an entrepreneurial family. Her strong communication and people skills derived from years of experience in the service and tourism industries throughout Canada and Newfoundland.
When the possibility of working with Juniper BBQ Scrapers presented itself, Lesley jumped on the opportunity. Being a lover of a great BBQ, along with her education and experience, she is a great fit for the company and cannot wait to do awesome things with the Juniper brand.
