About Sami Carter

I'm an ambassador for dairy farmers and an advocate for enjoying all dairy foods. Since 2009, I've been a social voice for Midwest Dairy Association. You'll often find me tweeting, pinning or taking photos to share on Midwest Dairy's social media channels. Similarly, I provide tools, training and resources to help dairy farmers tell their story using social media.

In my spare time, I enjoy traveling and adventures, learning new culinary skills, volunteering and running for Team Dairy.

It doesn’t seem so long ago when my husband, Eric, and I sat in our hospital pre-registration meeting. I was given the boring hospital policies and rules paperwork, and he had the fun paperwork (I thought) getting started on our daughter’s birth certificate.
