Customer Service & Sales Manager, Greene Galvanized Stairs
Jessica Kozak is a 2015 Agriculture Leadership Education graduate. She is the Customer Service & Sales Manager at Greene Galvanized Stairs in East Lynne, Illinois. The company manufactures and sells stairs for grain bins and grain handling systems. As a service and sales manager, Jessica works closely with farmers and grain bin manufacturers.
During her time at the University of Illinois, Jessica said her favorite part of studying Agricultural Education was the "ability to explore all facets of agriculture". She continued by saying, "I learned so much more than I thought I would, and because of the versatility of the major, there were numerous options and opportunities for me to personalize the degree to my interests!" Jessica chose to pursue a degree in Agricultural Education because she wanted to find a way to incorporate what she enjoyed in her youth (horseback riding, hunting, fishing, camping, etc.) into a career.
Jessica's advice for current and future students is to not be afraid to explore. "College is about deciding your future, and now is the time to try new things and see what really fits you."
