Based out of Montgomery, AL, Allison Spence keeps the digital media and marketing creative and engaging for Harvest Returns. A Missouri native, Spence grew up in a rural town where she found a immense gap in communication and understanding about agricultural topics between agriculturalists and the general consumer. She soon realized how important being an “agvocate” would be throughout her life and future career in agricultural communications. In the past, Spence worked as a researcher and content creator in TV news for 10News WTSP in Tampa Bay, Florida. She was previously a copywriter at a web design company where she developed content for clients and enhanced inbound marketing efforts with blog posts, social media marketing, email marketing and search engine optimization. She also interned for the University of Missouri-Columbia’s College of Agriculture, Food and Natural Resources as the social media intern. Spence earned a B.S. in Science and Agricultural Journalism with a minor in Agricultural Economics from the University of Missouri-Columbia.
