Richey Joins Council As New Global Programs Coordinator

Sierra Richey joined the U.S. Grains Council (USGC) in its Washington, D.C., headquarters on Dec. 1 as the new global programs coordinator.

In this role, Richey will support the global programs department, make arrangements for visiting teams, organize staff and member travel and facilitate program planning and execution.

“We feel with Sierra’s education, international experiences including time in our Panama office and her Spanish language skills, she will fit right in with the global programs team and be a big asset for us,” said Cary Sifferath, USGC’s senior director of global programs.

Prior to the Council, Richey worked in Nebraska Wesleyan University’s global engagement office as a special projects coordinator and as an intern with the Council’s Latin America regional office in Panama. Richey has also acted as a mentor for highly gifted elementary students in the Lincoln, Nebraska, public school system, where she taught Spanish.

Richey holds bachelor’s degrees in international business and modern languages with an emphasis in Spanish from Nebraska Wesleyan University.

Please join the Council in welcoming Sierra!
