Amy te Plate Church

Sci comm enthusiast | Strategy buff

For Amy te Plate-Church, animal agriculture is a foundational pillar to her upbringing, college experiences and a career spanning more than 20 years (and counting!). Amy joined Look East in 2015, following a lengthy career in the dairy and livestock genetic industry and is based in “America’s Dairyland,” working from her home office in northeastern Wisconsin. Amy strives to enrich farming and food production – specifically to help build trust, maintain freedom to operate and develop acceptance for new innovation.

Day-in and day-out, Amy works with agribusinesses and farm groups to create and carry out trust-building communication strategies. She is intrigued by the challenge brought by each organization with different and evolving needs. Amy is well-regarded as a speaker, writer, public relations pro, educator and facilitator. She is passionate about volunteering with causes she is passionate about, including ag advocacy, youth development and education.

Amy earned degrees in Dairy Science and Ag Journalism from Iowa State University (Go Cyclones!). She was raised on an Iowa dairy farm, where values of hard work, teamwork and integrity were deeply ingrained. Her long history with agriculture makes her a perfect speaker for your event.
