Turner brings extensive accounting and finance management experience to the role. She has worked with the Canadian Wheat Board as a financial analyst and with Agricore, formerly Manitoba Pool elevators, as an accounting manager. She also served as the finance manager for two irrigation district member associations in southern Alberta.

Most recently, Turner worked as the controller for the Winnipeg Housing and Rehabilitation Corporation.

Turner has CPA and CGA designations, a business administration diploma from Red River College in Winnipeg, and a project management certificate from Mount Royal University in Alberta.

Turner has strong family connections to the farm sector in Manitoba, and recently moved back to Winnipeg with her husband.

She will begin her new role at the Foodgrains Bank in June. She replaces former finance director Carol Miles, who is retiring at the end of June after 27 years of service.
