Elizabeth A. Bechdol

Ms. Elizabeth Bechdol is the Director of Agribusiness Strategies at Ice Miller and is responsible for coordinating the firm's agricultural legal services practice.

Beth was the Deputy Director of the first-ever Indiana State Department of Agriculture where she had an integral role in establishing the agency and crafting the strategic plan for Indiana agriculture put forward by Governor Mitch Daniels. She was directly involved in ISDA's international trade activities, participating in Governor Daniels' four trade missions and coordinating two of Lt. Governor Becky Skillman's agricultural trade missions.

Her dedication to public service in agriculture and her extensive trade and farm policy experience extends beyond this role in Indiana to Washington, D.C. where she served in key roles at the U.S. Department of Agriculture and on the Senate Agriculture Committee under Senator Richard G. Lugar.

Beth began her career in the Washington office of Sparks Companies, Inc. As a vice president in the firm, she assisted clients in understanding critical issues such as biotechnology, changing farm structure, global trade, federal farm policy, risk management tools, among other major trends.

She was raised on a corn and soybean farm in Auburn, IN and lives there today with her husband Matt and daughter Grace.
