Lekin will spend this summer working with CSIF to advance their mission of supporting farmers as they raise livestock responsibly and successfully. Her responsibilities include assisting with content creation, event planning, and maintaining strong industry relations.
Originally from Toledo, Iowa, Lekin’s involvement in the agriculture industry began at a young age as the fourth generation to work at her family’s business, Tama Livestock Auction. She is currently pursuing a bachelor’s degree in agriculture and society at Iowa State University. With a strong passion for both agricultural advocacy and communications, Lekin looks forward to sharpening her skills and supporting Iowa’s farmers as the 2021 communications intern.
