Profile – Angie Lang

My name is Angie Lang, and I am EFA’s Marketing and Social Media Coordinator.

After coming to the conclusion that I probably wasn’t going to be a farm girl, I decided to represent farmers across Alberta.  I have a communications degree and it fits well with being able to give hardworking egg farmers a voice.  I’m just a spring chicken!  I’ve only been at EFA for a few months, but I am looking forward to the adventure with egg farmers!

Born in Calgary and raised in Cochrane, Alberta, I have a dog named Toby who lives with my parents in Cochrane, since he’s not a huge fan of apartment life and living 23 stories high.  My interests outside of work include travelling (I’ve been many places, but have yet to see it all), attending Stampeders games, hanging out with exotic animals, and jumping out of planes – you know, normal stuff!

Although I haven’t been here too long, there have already been some really great memories made thus far.    My favorite memory is meeting Levi Hofer, one of EFA’s Egg Ambassadors, at Aggie Days Lethbridge.  I loved hearing him talk about how he sings to his birds in the morning and they sing back to him; that’s true passion!

I feel EFA is successful because we are able to mix the traditional with the innovative thinking about agriculture.  In a society that is increasingly modernizing, I think it’s important to keep tradition and values alive, and EFA does that perfectly.  I’m excited to see what the future holds for EFA.  I know there will be constant, positive change and progress with environmental policies in agriculture.
