About Kelsey Hall

I am an associate professor and program director in agricultural communication at Utah State University. I teach agricultural communication courses and graduate courses. My appointment in Extension focuses on local food marketing and agricultural communication. Most of my research explores how knowledge, attitudes, psychographics, barriers, benefits, communication strategies, and other factors about food marketing and agricultural practices influence the behaviors of farmers, consumers, and policy makers. Kelsey’s interest in Ohio's Standardbred harness racing industry and journalism led to a career in agricultural communications. As the managing editor for BLF Management, an association management company, she wrote and edited content for 6 serial quarterly publications, 6 bi-monthly e-newsletters and websites from 2004-2006. Previously, she worked as the communications intern for the Ohio Harness Horsemen's Association and OFA-an association of floriculture professionals from 2001-2003. As a consultant for the publicity department of the Franklin County Fairboard, she helped create the 2003 fair campaign, organizing the media day, and writing press releases and public service announcements for local radio and television. Kelsey also served as the editor of Buckeye Bound, a publication of The Lantern in 2003. Hobbies include gardening, eating local food, camping, hiking, cross country skiing and snowshoeing.
