Reese joined MSGA in 2019, and leads the association’s marketing and communications programs. In addition, she serves as the editor of the monthly Stockgrowers Update newsletter and the event director for the Association’s MidYear Meeting and Annual Convention and Trade Show.

Following her move to Montana from Texas to begin her tenure with MSGA, Keni quickly established herself as a crucial part of our organization’s team. She has been instrumental in leading our organization’s marketing and communications strategies and has established our organization as the standard for agricultural policy communications. MSGA is beyond fortunate to have Keni working on behalf of our members.”
