I’m Krista Stradley and I recently joined Central Ohio Farm Bureau as the marketing and media associate. I hold a business degree from The Ohio State University and a culinary degree from Alamance Community College in Graham, NC. My husband, Lee, and I have been married for 20 years, and we have two teenage sons and three cats. I enjoy hiking, cooking, beekeeping and reading in my spare time and am very excited about my future at Central Ohio Farm Bureaus.
