“Lacie has a dual passion for public policy writing and agriculture and will undoubtedly help the association convey its key messages in an engaging way,” said Victoria Broehm, AFIA’s director of communications. “Our communications department has a number of projects in the pipeline to better connect with consumers and influencers, and I know that with Lacie’s experience, she will bring a lot of fresh ideas to the table. We are very excited for her to join the team!”

In this role, she supported the agricultural policy and media teams in grassroots advocacy and content creation.
