Laura Herrea, Executive National Director -  Queen's Relations, AgVocate Program

State Director for Indiana, Ohio, Wisconsin, Illinois, and Kentucky.

 

Laura was born and raised in Tipton County, Indiana. 

Laura's interests in the human/horse connection led her to pursue a Ph.D. in Human Services, with an emphasis in Family Studies and Intervention Strategies.  Her dissertation dealt with the association between equine-assisted therapy and improvement in social skills in children with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder.    Her love of horses led her to volunteer with Agape Therapeutic Riding in Cicero, Indiana and she has witnessed first hand the miracle of equine-assisted therapy changing lives.  Agape Therapeutic Riding cultivates personal growth by strengthening the mind, body, and spirit through unique horse-facilitated experiences.

Laura looks forward to working with each member of the Founders Club and future AgVocates.  As a life-long learner, she looks forward to the interests of this group and their particular passions in the Agribusiness industry.

National AgVocates work closely with the National Office to promote things that are important to the future of the Agribusiness field.   Traveling to trade shows, conferences, and fairs so that your voice can be heard.  AgVocates spend time promoting America’s Miss Agribusiness program, helping to grow both the Sponsorship Program and  Scholarship Fund.

Executive National Director, Laura Hererra has been selected to work alongside your National Director and Founder to build a Foundation Program.  

 

This program is our “National AgVocate Program". This began in 2019 when we crowned our first 3 National AgVocates:
