Kayla Smith


Kayla grew up working on a family farm in central Iowa where they raised corn, soybeans, and hogs. She attended Iowa State University majoring in Agricultural Studies. During college, she interned with Iowa Falls State Bank where she took on a variety of duties. After graduating from Iowa State University in 2017, she started with Hurley & Associates in their Grundy Center, Iowa office. With a full appreciation and understanding for how hard farmers work to succeed and to continue to improve what they do, Kayla works to educate her clients, and others in the ag Industry, about marketing tools available to them and how best to utilize them to meet their needs and reach their goals.

Her favorite part of the job is applying personalized marketing plans to each individual producer. It is Hurley’s mission to help their clients achieve economic stability while maintaining the dignity and value of the farm family, and she feels most rewarded when her clients feel that is what she has done. Kayla looks forward to growing within her role at Hurley to help more underserved producers grow their farming operations.

Kayla, her husband Tyler, and daughter, live and farm outside of Grundy Center, and are co-owners in a custom farming & trucking business. She looks forward to advancing their family farm each year, while applying the same principles she uses professionally on their own farm. In her spare time, Kayla enjoys spending time with her family, gardening, traveling, and playing volleyball.
