Bio:  I am the brand coordinator with Helena Products Group (HPG), a division of Helena Agri-Enterprises, LLC. I work closely with HPG Brand Management to develop brand identity and strategy for new and existing products in Helena’s extensive portfolio. I also support Helena brands through public relations and marketing campaigns. I began my career in ag with the Mississippi Department of Agriculture, Bureau of Plant Industry in public relations. I grew up in Starkville, Mississippi, and I am a graduate of Mississippi State University with a Bachelor of Arts in communication.

I joined the National Association of Farm Broadcasters (NAFB) in 2019 because I believe a strong working relationship between businesses such as Helena and ag media is vital to the success of producers and the industry as a whole. Over the past couple of years, my eyes have been opened by the knowledge I’ve gained from NAFB. From educational webinars on media consumption to the one-on-one interaction with broadcasters, NAFB has helped me understand the true breadth of issues facing the ag community on a daily basis. I look forward to becoming more involved, and I would appreciate the opportunity to participate as an Allied Industry Council (AIC) representative. I believe my experience on both the regulatory and commercial side of the industry gives me a unique perspective. I hope to build on that experience as an AIC representative, working to serve the ag community and sustain a thriving network of farm broadcasters.
