About Me

Hi! I’m Angela and I’m the voice behind Iowa Farm Grown. My blog name comes from the wonderful memories I have from my childhood growing up on a farm in Northwest Iowa. My parent’s farm holds a very special place in my heart, and I love going home to such a relaxing and serene environment. Growing up on a farm has also made me into the person I am today and has cultivated my work ethic and independence. After college, I started my career in Chicago and now call Des Moines home and absolutely love my city!


From 8 to 5 I work in corporate marketing and absolutely love it. Outside of work I live life full as the Immediate Past President for the Iowa chapter of the American Marketing Association (AMA Iowa), freelancing, playing volleyball, volunteering at my church and in the community and as a marketing committee member for Solidarity Microfinance and Big Brothers Big Sisters of Central Iowa, as well as the Co-Chair of the Iowa Employer Volunteer Initiative. I am also a proud member of the Greater Des Moines Leadership Institute Class of 2013 and the Community Connect Class of 2014.

My faith is very important to me, and I work each day to be the best person I can be. I like to spend time with family and friends and enjoy entertaining and traveling as much as possible. I also love to cook and bake and find nothing more satisfying than making food that people love to eat!

I am obsessed with shopping, shoes and all things sparkly. On the side I love to travel, take in new experiences, am a major Hawkeye fan and am passionate about making our world a better place one day at a time.

Thanks for visiting!

    1. Thanks, Amber! I love that you are subscribed, too! That means a lot to me. I keep up to date on yours as well. It was just time to start a blog – but it took me a long time to come up with a URL. So, glad that you like it!
