My name is Kellie Lasack, owner of Roan Marketing and Communications. I'm an Iowa farm girl who was raised on meat, potatoes, and hard work. Being raised on a cow/calf operation taught me many things in life, but the one that sticks with me the most is sometimes you have to get creative. Whether it was stacking the square bales in the barn, sorting out one cow from 70, or getting dad to see my way, I had to be creative in how I managed each task. This passion led me to Iowa State University where I graduated in 2012 with my B.S. in Agricultural Communications and Advertising.  When it comes to agriculture there are two things that I'm obsessed with; cows and my grandfather's John Deere 3020.

Kellie is a self starter, not afraid of work and enjoys people and their contributions to collaboration.
