Kyleigh Meyeres joined Practical Farmers of Iowa in June 2023 as an office assistant. In this role, Kyleigh assists with a variety of projects, including front office activities, data collection and coordinating the welcome committee for new members of PFI.
Kyleigh is a senior at Iowa State University. In spring 2024, she will graduate with a Bachelor of Science in technical communication and a minor in English, with a focus on grant writing and nonprofit organizational structure. Throughout her time at ISU, she has been a show team member of the ISU Western Equestrian Team, competing around the Midwest under the Western horsemanship discipline.
During the summer of 2023, Kyleigh will complete her emergency medical technician certification to become an EMT and serve the community in her free time. Kyleigh is also an ambassador of the First Responders Children’s Foundation based in New York City, where she helps to support the children and families of first responders who have been killed or injured in the line of duty.
Kyleigh grew up between the cornfields of Maquoketa, Iowa, and the mountains of Livingston, Montana. Growing up in a first-responder family, Kyleigh knew that she wanted to learn how to give back and serve her community. In her free time, you will find Kyleigh riding her horse, walking her dogs, going on outdoor adventures or reading a book in her hammock.
