The Iowa Food Co-op thanks Jennifer Miller, who has been our Communications Coordinator since April 2013. The reason is she’s decided to take a break to concentrate on making her farm – Clarion Sage Farm – a success.
Jen spent many hours helping the IFC mature into an amazing enterprise. Her work included getting us established on Facebook, planning many different events, visiting with producers and consumers, reaching out to media, and working on our e-newsletter, website and software.
One measure of her impact is that during her tenure we added 500 new members (now almost 1,100 total!). Another is that average sales per distribution grew from $7,765 the year before she started to $13,685 in her final year – an increase of almost $6,000 per distribution!
The IFC wouldn’t be where it is today without Jen’s efforts. For this we are extremely grateful.
And the icing on the cake: she helped us find our new Communications Coordinator, Ash Bruxvoort. We are lucky to have Ash to continue a great IFC tradition of reaching out to the IFC community and keeping our co-op growing!
Thank you Jen – we will be seeing you around!
