GrowNextGen industry leader

Katie Reardon

Global Demand and Market Development Coordinator at the Ohio Soybean Council

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!
