Julianne Thompson Joins IPSA as Communications and Marketing Lead


Julianne Thompson has joined the Independent Professional Seed Association (IPSA) as Communications and Marketing Lead after a career in the corporate advertising, retail and blogging sectors. Previously, Julianne served as a copywriter for Dillard’s corporate advertising in Little Rock, AR.

Thompson will draw on her background in communications in her new role – developing and executing the organization’s marketing and communications materials.

A graduate of the University of Central Missouri with a degree in Fashion & Apparel Merchandising, Thompson still loves maxi skirts and wedges, bur her interests have expanded to include holistic parenting, wholesome cooking, and natural and eco-conscious homemaking.

She works from her home in Springdale, AR where she lives with her husband and 4-year-old son. When she is not writing the IPSA eNews, renovating her new (old) home with her husband, or reading Brown Bear, Brown Bear for the umpteenth time, she enjoys drinking copious amounts of coffee, organizing fundraisers for Heifer International, hiking the Ozarks, and trying to make time for all the hobbies she enjoyed B.T. (before toddler).
