Kayla grew up and has always worked 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. Kayla first heard of Hurley & Associates while she was in high school and, when she saw that Hurley attended the ISU Career Fair, she started researching the firm in detail. With a full appreciation and understanding for how hard farmers work to succeed and to continue to improve what they do, Kayla was intrigued with the marketing piece of the equation that Hurley handles. She realizes how complex creating a strong marketing plan is to the overall success of the family farm. Kayla was hired on full-time as a Farm Marketing Consultant in June of 2017 to work out of the Grundy Center, IA office. Her favorite part of the job is applying personalized marketing plans to each individual producer, as well as furthering clients’ education in the marketing tools available. In her spare time, Kayla enjoys spending time with her family, coaching volleyball and helping out at the family farm when she can.
