Kelsey Hall's Portrait

About Me


My name is Kelsey Hall, and I am an assistant professor in agricultural communication and journalism at Utah State University. My interest in Ohio's Standardbred harness racing industry and journalism led to a career in agricultural communications. As the managing editor for BLF Management, an association management company, I wrote and edited content for 6 serial quarterly publications, 6 bi-monthly e-newsletters and websites from 2004-2006. Previously, I worked as the communications intern for the Ohio Harness Horsemen's Association and OFA-an association of floriculture professionals.


I graduated magna cum laude with distinction in agricultural communications in 2004 and with a master’s in agricultural and extension education in 2008 from The Ohio State University. I earned my doctorate degree in agricultural education with an emphasis in agricultural communication from Texas Tech University in August 2011.


The goal of this website is to provide you an understanding of my interests, education, teaching philosophy, teaching experience, and research activities. My portfolio showcases samples of my video production, news writing, press release writing, and graphic design. Enjoy!
