Hi! My name is Jacie Grant, and I am currently the Employee Experience Specialist for the Virginia Market for Cargill. I am an Animal Scientist by education, having received both my BS and MS from Purdue University. My passion is in agriculture and food production/food processing. I was a production supervisor in manufacturing facility for some time before returning to pursue my Master's degree and love the operations side of the agriculture industry. My goal is to return to operations in a Continuous Improvement role in the future. However, I currently serve a wide range of manufacturing employees and work closely with plant managers in the region on employee retention and engagement challenges.
