Chippewa Valley native Jessica Ryba has signed on as Administrative Assistant for Wisconsin Farmers Union. In her new role, Ryba will support the Farmers Union team and help oversee day-to-day duties at the family farm organization’s state headquarters in Chippewa Falls.
Ryba lives in Chippewa Falls with her partner, Lance, and their blended family. They hope to add some backyard chickens this summer but also enjoy helping on the Clark County farm that has been in Jessica’s family for 125 years. Ryba also likes bike riding, particularly the Elroy-Sparta State Trail, and exploring all our wonderful state has to offer.
“I’m excited to be working with Wisconsin Farmers Union – the organization encompasses so much more than I ever knew,” Ryba said. “As I personally know the struggles small family farms go through, I’m looking forward to seeing all the good WFU does for our state and its people.”
“With her own ties as the fifth generation of her family farm, Jessica cares deeply about the issues impacting Wisconsin farmers and our work to keep family farms on the land,” said WFU Executive Director Julie Keown-Bomar. “She is a wonderful addition to the WFU team.”
Ryba began her duties on March 15th and can be reached at 715-723-5561 or [email protected].
