Dirt Roads and Direct Routes to Information

AnnaLisaMeet Anna-Lisa Giannini, our latest addition to the Farm Journal team. Anna-Lisa grew up in the Sierra Nevada foothills of California on a cow–calf operation that has been in her family for more than 100 years.

That dirt road led to Modesto Junior College, where she earned an associate’s degree in animal science and worked on the school’s poultry farm. After that, she found herself surrounded by red dirt at Oklahoma State University. While earning her agricultural degree, she milked cows, worked in the animal science department and became hooked on social media—blogging, Twitter,
Facebook, you name it.

Now she’s using her deep roots and dirty boots as Farm Journal’s advocacy and social media editor. In that role, Anna-Lisa will use social media to offer up valuable information and help you learn how to use social media. You can check out one of her first stories about a fun new tool, ChaCha, on page 36.

You can reach out to Anna-Lisa through the contact information below. Don’t be shy; let her know the news and information you need delivered down your dirt road daily.
