I’m Marlene Eick and I’m honored to serve as the Wayne County Farm Bureau president. My husband and I moved back to the Wooster area – his hometown – about six years ago. (My hometown is Jenera, Ohio, where I grew up on a family swine and grain farm.) I work as a consultant to organizations, providing leadership and professional development training for their leaders and members. Almost all my clients are in the agriculture space and I love that I get to work with growers, farmers, and ranchers across the country. I’ve really enjoyed putting down roots in Wayne County and getting to know our county’s rich agriculture heritage and all those advancing our industry forward.
