WASHINGTON – The International Dairy Foods Association (IDFA) introduced Mariah MacKenzie as its communications department’s new communications coordinator.

The organization said MacKenzie’s responsibilities include managing IDFA content on social media platforms, as well as in publications and communications products.

MacKenzie previously worked as a communications specialist for the National Association of Conservation Districts and as a campaign associate for Environment Maryland. She earned a political science degree from George Washington University.

“IDFA is focused on advocating to ensure America’s dairy companies and communities have the tools and resources they need to innovate and grow,” said Matt Herrick, the association’s senior vice president, public affairs and communications. “I’m thankful to add Mariah to our A team of industry communicators. Mariah’s experience and commitment will enhance our team’s ability to deliver even greater value to IDFA members.”

In serving the entire dairy supply chain in the United States, one of IDFA’s functions is to provide data, research and analysis to help dairy companies.
