Jennifer Wall, Ioka Farms & Ioka Marketing, Silverton, OR

Jennifer joined the PSA board this year and will serve as the chair for the PSA Scholarship Committee. She is the Office Manager & HR, for Ioka Farms & Ioka Marketing.

We asked Jennifer a few questions about her thoughts on the Industry, her career and a few fun questions about herself.

Company / Personal Questions:

I’ve been with Ioka Farms for 2 years now.

PSA questions:

Ioka has been members of the PSA for 24 years.

My favorite part of being an member of PSA is the networking opportunities and the way that everyone is so welcoming and happy to see you.

My advice to new PSA members would be don’t be afraid to jump in with both feet and introduce yourself to current members. They are all so welcoming and friendly and it is always a good time!

Industry Questions

What I love most about the seed industry: the people and the passion and culture that comes with the people. You can tell that people in the seed industry believe in what they are doing and they are proud to be doing it.

The advice I would give to someone who wants to enter agriculture is to follow their passion. Agriculture is all around us, we would not be able to live without it. The industry will always need new talent and new perspective. Follow their hearts and they will never work a day in their lives!

One thing I learned in the last month was I taught myself InDesign and created the Ioka Yearly Calendar from scratch!

Career Questions

My biggest professional achievement so far is excelling in the role of Business office manager and HR at Ioka.

Best career advice I have received was "Do what you say you are going to do when you say that you are going to do it. Have integrity in everything that you do." – My Dad.

What I love most about my job is that I love where I work, the family members that I work for are wonderful and the people I work with are amazing and it makes coming to work so wonderful. I feel like I am part of the family.

Fun Questions

I was the first person in my family to graduate from college. 

A fun fact about me that most people dont know is that I am an adrenaline junkie, I love roller coasters, and I want to go skydiving and bungee jumping!

My favorite comfort food is fettuccini alfredo and garlic bread.

I am a night owl for sure!

The theme song of my life right now about be "Growing up raising you" by Gabby Barrett. I have a 5-year-old daughter and she teaches me so much about myself every day that I didn’t know. She teaches me how to be a better mom.
