New Richland County Farm Bureau manager effective
August 1st, 2015.
Hello! My name is Shawna Zeilstra and I am excited to have been named the new Richland County Farm Bureau manager. I was previously the 4-H & Youth Development Program Coordinator for the University of Illinois Extension in Crawford County.
I am a native of Richland County and graduated from East Richland High School in 1999. I then went on to Southern Illinois University Carbondale where I earned my Master of Science and Bachelor of Science in Animal Science. Upon completion of my Bachelor’s Degree, I took an advanced internship opportunity and worked at Walt Disney World’s Animal Kingdom in Orlando, FL in 2003.
I then married in 2004 and upon completion of my Master’s Degree (2007) moved to McCordsville, IN, located just outside of Indianapolis. While living in Indiana I worked as a Team Manager/Customer Service Trainer for a multi-specialty emergency and veterinary hospital.
My husband, PJ, and I moved back to Olney in 2012 after starting a family. We now have two sons, Jaxson, 3 ½ years old and Jaymeson, 10 months old.
Please do not hesitate to call or stop by the Richland Co. Farm Bureau office to simply introduce yourself. I look forward to working with all of you!
