Author: Kellianne Mitchell

My name is Kellianne Mitchell (pronounced Kelly-Ann). I’m from Troy, Missouri, and I am a freshman science and agricultural journalism student at Mizzou. Back at home, I live with my mom, dad, younger brother and my chocolate lab, Lizzy. I’m also that girl who will never grow out of that horse-crazy stage. I’ve been riding horses since I was about 3 years old and have done just about anything and everything, but now I currently own my one horse, Josey, and barrel race. I hope to some day work for an agricultural company or publication so I can continue to promote agriculture through writing, marketing and other means of public relations. I’m excited to be a part of Mizzou’s CAFNR and writing for Corner Post because I can finally get the chances and opportunities to share and spread the word about agriculture and it’s many, many benefits to the world.
