Jamie Campbell Petty
MIDWEST HEMP COUNCIL
Jamie Campbell Petty built her career as a successful litigation paralegal that continued to evolve over 20 years, while also volunteering in various service roles to support youth, as well as her own military community. Jamie now resides on a small, but ever-expanding farm in rural Indiana, where she and her husband are learning to depend upon smaller living systems.
Jamie’s lifelong appreciation for agriculture shows in her countless victories for industrial hemp in Indiana and nationally. Coupled with her desire to serve, Jamie founded the Indiana Hemp Industries Association (INHIA) in 2014 and assembled a strong team of volunteers. INHIA became the recognized leader in education and networking.
In 2018, Jamie teamed with longtime hemp advisor Alan Kimbell and attorney Justin Swanson to form Midwest Hemp Council. Through tireless effort, Midwest Hemp Council has successfully lobbied for Indiana’s hemp legislation, contributed to regulatory development and continues to support efforts to remove unnecessary barriers for farmers and retailers. Jamie has fostered partnerships with Midwest agriculture leaders, while building out the Midwest Hemp Council that interconnects businesses, organizations and community outreach. Midwest Hemp Council continues to educate and communicate, while focusing on building a strong economy in the Midwest region and beyond.
Along with serving as Executive Director for the Midwest Hemp Council, Jamie will join Whitefield Global Holdings as of January 1, 2022, where she will serve as the Director of Industry and Governmental Relations. Jamie was named "100 People to Know in Hemp" by Hemp Connoisseur Magazine 2018. Jamie currently serves on the Board of Directors for Friends of Hemp and National Hemp Association's Standing Committee of Hemp Organizations. Early in 2021, Jamie joined the Board of Hemp Brand Builders for whom she also serves as a Business Development and Industry Outreach Consultant.
