Meet the Planet Hatch Team

Tara Leavitt,
Operations Coordinator


Tara was born and raised in NB.  She has a wife and 2 beautiful little girls.  She enjoys spending time with her family, travelling and exploring new places.  Her focus of her 3 years in College was a mix of hospitality and administrative studies.  

After enjoying 6 years in client services as an account manager, she moved to AB to focus on expanding her administrative skills and growing her family.  She worked at Alberta Health Services as an Administrative Assistant for an addiction counselling centre and loved the mix of interaction with the clients and administrative work.  4 years later, she had her 1st child and decided to move back to NB to be with family and call Fredericton home.  Since that time, she has been doing administrative tasks for a startup company and completed her family with the birth of her 2nd daughter.

Tara's role at Planet Hatch is a perfect fit!  She loves people, new challenges and administrative duties.  Building relationships with our members and interacting with all types people while performing the administrative work required to operate our centre is how she loves to spend her day.  

Mikala Watson,
Client Services Coordinator


Mikala is originally from Beechwood, New Brunswick but has called Fredericton her home for over 10 years. Mikala graduated from the University of New Brunswick in 2016 with a Bachelor of Arts.

Before joining Planet Hatch in 2021 as the Client Services Coordinator, Mikala worked in the non-profit sector and gained experience through initiatives to raise awareness about societal and cultural issues.

Mikala's role at Planet Hatch is a great fit! She loves engaging with people of all backgrounds and learning their stories. Planet Hatch allows her to not only learn from these individuals but to help them in their entrepreneurial journey. The excitement with Planet Hatch comes with the new business owners and their new ideas, the newcomers that come to Planet Hatch’s facilities through the Start-up Visa Program, and helping day-to-day members access the services they need and sharing their successes.
