Jessi was raised on a family farm in Northwest Iowa not far from Sioux City where they raised corn, soybeans, and a few cattle. She graduated from South Dakota State University majoring in Ag Business with Ag Marketing & Animal Science minors. In her time there, she was employed as a student research assistant and assisted with crop survey analysis and consumer studies.
While exploring career options, Jessi interned with Blue Bunny, however, the lure of free ice cream was not enough to keep her from returning to her true passion in the Ag industry. In the summer of 2015, she got the opportunity to work back in agriculture as an intern with Hurley & Associates. She appreciated their unique approach to marketing and focus on each individual producer.
Jessi was hired on full time as a Farm Marketing Consultant in June of 2016 to work out of the Glenwood, MN office. Her favorite part of the job is working alongside producers to help them and their operations succeed.
