Meet Our Customer Experience Specialist: Heather Battista

Heather has always had an interest in gardening, so when Covid hit in March 2020 and she found herself furloughed, she made the best her time “off” by learning everything she could about gardening, composting, and waste-reduction. Practicing everything from growing her own herbs and vegetables to making her own laundry detergent, Heather developed a passion for a sustainable, organic lifestyle. This passion is what drew her to Cherry Valley Organics, both as a customer AND an now as an employee!  Heather loves spending time outdoors for work and play, and is happiest surrounded by nature, especially when she can share those experiences with her boys.

A natural problem solver, Heather is eager to serve CVO’s retail customers and share her love of our products with everyone she meets!  She is friendly, resourceful, and enthusiastic about all CVO has to offer.  Always striving towards a superb customer experience that matches the quality of our products, Heather will happily answer any question you send her way!



 When asked about her favorite plants, Heather says, “Lavender and mint are my absolute favorites! I love the way they smell and the number of different things you can do with them. I use mint to make tea and I eat it right off the plant. It’s a beautiful plant, grows so abundantly and smells amazing. I use lavender for a number of things. I put it in my cleaning products, make sachets and lotion and candles, put it in my bathwater and  I find that when a bedroom smells like lavender, it is so very calming and relaxing. Purple is also my favorite color so when the flowers bloom I am so happy.”
