In her new position, she will manage a diverse issue portfolio with an emphasis on regulatory affairs and emerging issues, including precision agriculture and technology, labor and immigration, and rural broadband.
“Sarah is a talented, knowledgeable and passionate advocate for agriculture. We are excited to welcome her back to NCGA,” said CEO Jon Doggett. “With her new experience on Capitol Hill and a long family history in production agriculture, she will be a strong advocate for corn farmers on policy and regulatory matters affecting their operations. I am confident that she will help us expand our relationships on the Hill and find common ground on our most important policy priorities for agriculture.”
