Ray grew up in a town of 1,000 where he worked on his uncle’s farm doing everything from baling hay to feeding hogs. These days, our gregarious president can usually be found on his bike, motorcycle, hiking mountains and canyons, or regaling those around him with stories of his numerous escapades. If you’re exhausted just reading this, so are we.
Head #girlboss of the team, Kim can school you on everything from how to market to your target audience to how to place a class of market steers. After more than 12 years as an ag communicator, there’s no job too big for this FFA and 4-H alumna, but her sweet spot is in crafting creative ways to pique consumers' interest in agriculture.
Raised on a farm in rural Tennessee, Jessy moved away from her small-town roots only to find herself editing rural lifestyle magazines. Now leading our content team, she realizes that agriculture is where her heart has been all along – as long as she can still live within a short cab ride from Nashville’s music and foodie scene.
Originally from western New York by way of Wilmington, N.C., Jeff is not only a talented photojournalist, but also an expert beekeeper. His honey and beeswax products are sold in stores throughout Tennessee. Jeff shoots our recipe photos and can often be found convincing our food styling team to cook more bacon.
A rare Nashville native, Allison heads up our web team in managing digital projects big and small, from mobile apps to video production to site launches. This nature lover and true crime podcast enthusiast also adores her four cats and abhors foolishness, so don’t start with her. She claims to play the cello, but we’ll believe it when we see it.
Between wrangling her two young daughters and our designers, editors and photographers, Laura has her hands full. She ensures our creative work is top-notch, from the perfect plate for a food shoot to the perfect font on the cover. And as a Louisiana native, she can peel crawfish faster than you can.
Molly keeps us all in line, managing project schedules, workloads and deadlines. She enjoys cooking, paddle boarding, Pure Barre, being trained by her crazy dog and days when her hair behaves (it’s full of secrets). She dislikes selfies but luckily didn't work here the year we all got selfie sticks for Christmas.
Our most aerodynamic sales manager, when Steve isn’t on the road meeting clients, he's probably outdoors – cycling, kayaking, dog training, barbecuing or dancing at a music festival. He's not a fan of rainy weather or cold car seats, which is why he often oversees our projects based in sunnier climates.
Herb grew up on a farm just outside of Nashville and knows firsthand about losing farmland to urban developments, which fuels his passion for promoting the importance of agriculture. In his spare time, he enjoys playing with his grandson, hiking with his German Shepherd and working in the yard.
Managing our ad production is no easy task, but Katie makes it look that way by keeping the process running smoothly and our valued advertisers happy. A city girl at heart, she has fond memories of hunting for arrowheads on her father’s Kentucky farm. Today, she still hunts for antiques – or the newest Nashville hot spot.
Amy is such a design whiz that we’re pretty sure she's using magic. Her creative touch can be seen in almost every one of our agribusiness magazines at any given time. In her spare time, she enjoys travel and yoga but advises against attempting downward-facing dog in your airplane seat.
Hailing from both rural Georgia and West Virginia, Kim has lived in downtown Nashville for more than a decade. The best possible balance of city and country, she can charm anyone from honky-tonkin’ tourists to fifth-generation farmers. Her bucket list has one item: seeing a humpback whale.
From the mean streets of New York City, Michael has adapted amazingly to regularly stepping in cow pies or suiting up to enter a chicken barn. He has a gift for making farm families feel at ease, even when faced with time constraints, bad weather or uncooperative children – or all three at once.
Our most stylish and grammatically correct member of the team, Rachel will help you with you’re mismatched outfit and point out that it really should be “your.” Ever the multitasker, she can go from curating digital content to editing for print in a matter of minutes. She enjoys dachshunds, vests and coloring.
Don’t let Robin’s sweet Southern accent distract you from her keen business acumen. She’s been with the company for 20-something years. (Of course, that means she started working here at age 9.) A city girl, she’s grateful her job has taught her the importance, value and impact of agriculture, which she never learned in school.
Imagine if Shaggy from Scooby Doo was focused enough to develop user-friendly websites and craft code for hours. Richard grew up a cowboy wannabe, hanging out on ranches in Texas and Arkansas. Now he herds the content team into approving wireframes in a timely manner (we’ll get to it, Richard!).
M.A. is the mastermind behind managing digital advertising campaigns, inventory, network revenue and performance. Our resident Star Wars fanatic, she's also fond of good Cabernet, wolves, pretty much all cheese, and lots and lots of coffee. All of these at once is basically her dream.
As a former Maryland Lamb & Wool Princess and Auburn University Miss College of Agriculture, Hannah knows ag and has the plastic tiaras to prove it, bringing farm expertise and a sense of humor to the table. She's an avid fan of the Rock, her dog TBone, velour leisure pants and slightly burnt popcorn. Yes, she's the one who keeps burning the popcorn.
Drew has the gift of gab and a real knack for making sausage balls. He grew up in rural Alabama and is a former 4-H and FFA member. Drew loves making connections with agribusiness industry leaders and promoting our work. When asked for a list of his favorite things, he included his “amazing” fiancé, Leah. Suck up.
Winner of the “Best Beard” award, Jake has achieved the perfect blend of lumberjack chic and business casual. He grew up working on his grandfather’s farm and can operate just about any piece of farm equipment. When traveling for sales, Jake tries to find his way into every sports stadium that he can. Go ahead and hug him, we know you want to.
A former newspaper reporter, Brittany writes, copy edits and magically turns spreadsheets of ag statistics into digestible farm facts. A requirement for living in Nashville, she enjoys playing guitar, singing and seeing live music. She also likes to hunt for the best brunch spots – but not if their menus have typos.
“Support” is no exaggeration when it comes to Courtney – our sales reps in the field rely on her as the point person back in the office, where she handles everything from media kits to mailings. Outside of work, she likes exploring Nashville, wine “tasting” and seeing movies that don’t star Nicolas Cage.
The newest member of the content team, CC brings her fresh perspective and lavender hair to the table. When she’s not teaching us about content syndication tools and marketing to millennials, she enjoys producing a podcast, traveling the U.S., covering local concerts, petting dogs and losing at trivia. A lot.
