Passionate about her Rural Roots


I am proud of my rural upbringing on our family farm in North Eastern Alberta along with my four younger sisters; Lynn, Sarah, Suzanne and Jeanelle. Together we helped our parents build a successful mixed farming operation. We were taught how to work hard, respect one another and take responsibility. All the while making sure we were having fun and remembering to be spontaneous. Dad always said “There’s a time to work hard and there’s a time to play hard.”

In 2007 our loving parents, Jean & Joanne Dargis, along with grandmother, Anita Dargis, were called up to heaven. I always say that I am grateful for many things but what I am grateful for the most is having the guidance and love of our parents for the time we did. I would not be the person I am today without having such examples to live up to. I am inspired everyday in becoming an individual that they are proud of.

Within the last few years I have grown to appreciate the power of inspiration and motivational speaking. I enjoy helping the people around me through sharing parts of my story and global perspectives that I have gained through traveling world. This website is a collection of thoughts and ideas that I hope will give you insight to living you life to its fullest!

Cheers, Léona

  1. I just read the amazing story about you and your sisters from a copy of the Furrow magazine. I’ve been around agriculture my entire life and appreciate the adversity that you girls have overcome. There are a lot of responsibilities to be accountable for with an operation of that size. What you girls have done is uplifting. Keep taking life by the horns and you will get everything you desire.

  2. Our whole family enjoyed the article in The Furrow about you and your sisters. We also are a farming family. Your parents certainly taught you girls how to succeed in life and it shows. I would like to be pen-pals with you or via e-mails if you’d like. God Bless You all.
