Indiana Farm Bureau’s District 2 has a new district education and outreach coordinator. Paula Kaiser, who lives in Kosciusko County, now represents the northeast corner of Indiana as a member of the INFB Women’s Leadership Committee.
In her new role, she will work primarily with county education and outreach coordinators in District 2 to communicate important information and ensure that they have the tools they need to excel in their positions.
Kaiser and her family raise row crops and bucket calves in Milford, Indiana. They also run a round bailing service from their farm.
Kaiser is employed off-farm as a trauma division purchasing agent for medical device manufacture Zimmer Biomet in Warsaw, Indiana. She holds a bachelor’s degree in organizational leadership and business management.
Kaiser is no stranger to INFB or the local agriculture community. She’s been an active member of Farm Bureau for more than 40 years and has spent many years supporting organizations such as 4-H.
“Before being elected to District 2, I was the CEOC for Kosciusko County Farm Bureau,” she said. “In addition, I am on the board for the Kosciusko County Community Foundation and have volunteered for 26 years as 4-H leader in Kosciusko County and on the Kosciusko County 4-H Council.”
Kaiser says she is most looking forward to working closely with the CEOCs in her district and getting to know other Farm Bureau leaders better.
Kaiser and her husband, Greg, have two sons, Kirk and Eric, and five grandchildren, Andrew, Rylan, Easton, Lincoln and Madison. In her spare time, she enjoys biking, walking, Zumba, and hip-hop workouts.
Kaiser’s advice to other Farm Bureau members is to not be afraid to step up and volunteer.
“We need fresh ideas to make change occur.”
