About FreshLeaf

Our story

The idea for FreshLeaf bubbled beneath the surface long before its debut in 2019. Jennifer Andrews—a scientist by training, marketer by profession—created the company after noticing that scientific businesses consistently faced the same problem: not being able to effectively translate complex subject matter into compelling marketing messaging.

Based in Guelph, Ontario, FreshLeaf is a boutique marketing consultancy serving 7-figure, small and medium-sized STEM-based businesses.

We serve both the local community (Guelph, Kitchener-Waterloo, Cambridge, GTA) and businesses around the world.

Our mission

To help health and life science businesses turn over a new leaf and achieve growth by simplifying the complex
