Meet Anna Leigh from Alabama

Cindy Zimmerman

nfms14-annaWe brought Anna Leigh Peek to the National Farm Machinery Show last week as our “unofficial” intern for the day, just because we are very impressed with the motivation and self-confidence of this Alabama farm girl who is about to graduate from Auburn University with a degree in agricultural communications.

“I had grown up for 13 years of my life on the farm so I have a deep appreciation and love for agriculture which motivated me to start farming last year a little bit on my own,” Anna Leigh told us.

Chuck met Anna Leigh at an AgChat conference and she made a point to look me up at the International Production and Processing Expo in Atlanta last month because she is determined to land a good job in the field of ag communications when she graduates in May. “There’s a lot of things I haven’t gotten to try yet, but right now I can see myself doing some sort of agricultural public relations,” she said.

Anna Leigh was excited to spend a day with us and learn more about what we do at an event, as well as get to meet some more folks in the industry. She is active on Twitter @AnnaLeighPeek and has her own blog “AL from AL” – Anna Leigh from Alabama! Please feel free to contact us to find out more about her, but we give her the ZimmComm seal of approval if you are looking for a new hire who is highly motivated and a fast learner with plenty of great communications and social media skills.
