Meet Ash Bruxvoort – IFC’s New Communications Coordinator!

We have some exciting news!

Jennifer Miller, who’s been our Communications Coordinator since April 2013, is moving on so she can focus on her farming enterprise (Clarion Sage Farm). Jennifer did an amazing job helping us grow. For that we are deeply grateful.

She also helped us find her replacement, so please help us welcome aboard Ash Bruxvoort!

Ash recently returned to the Des Moines area after taking a year to work on organic farms in western Iowa, northern California, and central New York. She grew up on a conventional farm in Mitchellville, Iowa, where she is starting her own homestead.

ashbruxvoortAsh has a BA in English, Nonprofit Management, and Philanthropy Communication from the University of Iowa. She is a passionate online marketer who specializes in nonprofit marketing and marketing for farms.

โ€œWhen I lived in New York most of the food I ate was grown within fifteen miles of me. I never thought that kind of local diet was possible in Iowa until I discovered Iowa Food Co-op,โ€ she said. โ€œIโ€™m thrilled to be a part of providing more local food options for consumers.โ€

Ash has done writing and online marketing for several organizations, including The Nature Conservancy in Iowa, the Women, Food, and Agriculture Network, and Local Foods Connection. Her writing about agriculture and conservation has appeared in Edible Omaha, Modern Farmer, Seedstock, and Precision Ag Magazine.

Ash will focus on streamlining our communications processes to ensure members can stay up to date with our cart cycle. She will also update our Facebook and Instagram, produce our e-newsletter, and update our website. We greatly appreciate her enthusiasm and skills. You can connect with her on Twitter or Instagram @campcreekpunk, or shoot her an email at ashbruxvoort.writer@gmail.com.
