COMM-USA Rice Welcomes Jesica Kincaid-180129

ARLINGTON, VA – Jesica Kincaid is joining the USA Rice team as Manager of International Policy. In this role, Jesica will be working on international trade issues and producing reports on the American rice industry, including the Rice Executive, and staffing the World Market Price Subcommittee.

Jesica grew up in Kansas City, went to college at Trinity University in San Antonio, and moved to DC in 2009 to attend grad school at American University where she earned an M.A. in International Affairs.  Jesica really only has one ‘S’ in her name, and her pastimes include cheering on the Kansas City Chiefs, playing volleyball, and planning a return visit to Paris.

Prior to joining USA Rice, Jesica spent five years at the Embassy of Ireland where she worked in agriculture and food trade, trying to get Americans to buy more Irish butter and whiskey.  She is excited to join the USA Rice team and to work with farmers and policymakers to promote U.S. grown rice.
