Rexanna deGruy, Ph.D., Manager Health and Wellness Communications
Rexanna deGruy grew up in a rural east Texas town on a commercial poultry farm where she and her family raised Brahman cattle. With a farming father and an agricultural-science teaching mother, Rexanna found her passion for agricultural education and storytelling at a very early age. Fascinated by the chance to communicate with people from all walks of life, she pursued a Bachelor and Master of Science in agricultural communications from Texas A&M and Texas Tech University, respectively, then earned her Doctor of Philosophy in AEEE (agricultural and extension education and evaluation) from Louisiana State University. She gained experience in research and marketing working for her alma maters and has earned several publishing credits in peer refereed journals on topics including food labeling and activist marketing. As she looked for her next opportunity, Rexanna knew she wanted to work for an organization with great purpose – and she found that purpose at Dairy MAX in September 2022. She and her husband, Dylan, live in Baton Rouge, Louisiana.
