Annie Whitehill, 2004
Kansas State University
I have worked for John Deere for seven years as a territory manager in central Minnesota, calling on 29 dealership locations. I am also involved with Stearns County Breakfast on the Farm and the local Holly Ball committee, which raises funds for hospice.
The Hoard's Dairyman internship was a great opportunity to learn about magazine production and gain editorial experience. Those experiences proved valuable in my various jobs at John Deere, including advertising and as an aftermarket manager where I was responsible for editing a bi-monthly newsletter for parts and service managers. Finally, it also taught me to work independently as I had opportunities to travel to California, Minnesota and throughout Wisconsin for interviews and stories.
