Young joins the Filament team after five years with Wisconsin Veterinary Medical Association.

Prior to her role at Wisconsin Veterinary Medical Association, Young worked as the livestock editor for Agri-View, one of Wisconsin's premier agricultural publications.
Earning a Bachelor of Science degree from the University of Wisconsin-Madison, Young studied agricultural journalism and agronomy.

"Her enthusiasm, knowledge of the livestock industry and passion for agriculture, combined with her leadership, project management and writing skills will be tremendous assets to our clients and their marketing programs."
Young grew up on a crop, tobacco and swine farm near Edgerton, Wis., where she still raises tobacco and can be found cleaning pens on a regular basis.
