While Jennifer is not a farmer and did not grow up on a farm, "I think you’d be hard pressed to find someone with more appreciation for the people who grow our food and fiber, live the lifestyles and practice the morals that bind many farm families," she says.
Before taking over as editor of Michigan Farmer in 2003, she served three years as the manager of communications and development for the American Farmland Trust Central Great Lakes Regional Office in Michigan and as director of communications with Michigan Agri-Business Association. Previously, she was the communications manager at Michigan Farm Bureau’s state headquarters. She also lists 10 years of experience at six different daily and weekly Michigan newspapers on her impressive resume.
As editor of Michigan Farmer, Jennifer says the most important aspect of her job is talking directly with farmers and sharing their experience with other farmers. "For that reason, I have the best job in the world. I have the privilege of meeting Michigan producers and finding out what works and what hasn’t," she says. "Michigan’s roots are in farming and there’s a lot of history here. Michigan agriculture is the second most diverse industry in the nation and constantly changing. Michigan farmers are adapting their operations, adopting new practices, working smarter and producing more on less land."
Jennifer works closely with the Michigan Department of Agriculture, Michigan Farm Bureau, Michigan State University Extension and Agricultural Experiment Station and many other agencies to keep farmers informed about policy decisions that may affect their operations.
