Get to Know Natalie Te Grootenhuis, Market Development Intern at Iowa Corn

Posted on June 1, 2015 at 12:08 PM by Iowa Corn

Hello everyone, my name is Natalie Te Grootenhuis and I am the new Marketing Development Intern here at Iowa Corn.

I grew up on a farm outside of Hospers, Iowa, my dad is a farmer and my mom is a fifth grade teacher at MOC-Floyd Valley. I have one younger brother who will be a sophomore in high school. At a young age I learned to love agriculture, when I was younger we raised baby calves and bottle fed about five hundred of them. This meant while other kids were at the pool swimming I was hanging out with my four legged best friends. My family now raises cattle and pigs along with crop farming corn and soybeans.

I graduated from MOC- Floyd Valley in 2013 where I was involved in FFA, 4H, softball, student council and served on the State of Iowa Youth Advisory Team. Following that I enrolled at Northwestern College (NWC) in Orange City Iowa, where I have an Ag-business and Marketing major. At NWC I serve as the women’s basketball manager as well as work with our local NRCS office doing surveying work. I am a member of the 2014-2015 Collegiate Advisory Team here at Iowa Corn as well. Though this experience I became more aware of what Iowa Corn is allowing me to step into my position here as the marketing intern well. Next spring I will enter “the real world” where I hope to be employed at an agriculture based business doing marketing work.

This summer I will be working a lot with the Iowa Corn 300 race as well as promoting other Iowa Corn events.  I am really excited for my summer at Iowa Corn; I look forward to getting to know my co-workers better and learning a lot from the organization.
