A career in global ag trade relies on strong interpersonal skills and an understanding of the food system. Could this career be for you?
I manage projects in the areas of export promotion, market access, transportation infrastructure/logistics, as well as value and supply sustainability.
What is the benefit of collaboration between industry/research and education?
I think it’s important to share information and resources! Connecting students to experts in the field helps them understand the opportunities available in agriculture.
What value/assistance can you and your company provide to teachers and classrooms as they connect with you?
I would be happy to provide teachers with lesson content, materials, and presentations. I can also help answer questions, serve on advisory boards, provide feedback and help teachers get connected with other industry affiliates.
Why should teachers connect with you through GrowNextGen?
I can provide information on Ohio soybean exports and careers related to soybean exports. I also have a background in Agriculture Communications and the two are closely connected. I didn’t grow up on a farm, but here I am today, almost 6 years into a career in agriculture!
