Introducing Kathleen Gilman

We first introduced Kathleen (Aschoff) Gilman in January of 2018. Since then, Kathleen has grown within the automed team so we felt it was time to re-introduce her and her role at automed.

When it comes to the automed team, there are generally two types of hires.

The first type typically comes from different industries, but they have complementary skills and the ability to learn what the livestock industry is all about quickly. The other type comes to the company with a wealth of knowledge of the industry.

Kathleen Gilman falls into the second category. In fact, we’d say she was born to work with automed.

A Perfect Fit

Kathleen received her Bachelor’s Degree in Animal Science with a minor in Agricultural Business before proceeding to work for a registered cattle ranch and the American Shorthorn Association. Added to that she raises cattle alongside her husband, so her immersion in the world of livestock is truly 24/7.

Kathleen discovered automed at the 2017 National Cattleman’s Beef Association (NCBA) tradeshow in Nashville. During this visit, she met the automed U.S. division and was blown away by the technology and vision behind the automed system.

Support and Training

Kathleen joined the automed team in August of 2017 and hasn’t looked back since. Her extensive background and work ethic helped to make Kathleen an asset to the team from day one. Her experiences also provide a helpful ability to see things from the point of view of the customer, which is another reason why she excels in her role.

Kathleen works directly with automed customers to ensure their businesses are getting the most out of the automed system. With Support and Training being a major focus for the company, Kathleen’s role cannot be understated. Whether it’s online, email, phone, or helping customers onsite – she is doing everything she can to ensure that customers are profiting from the automed system.

Many Hats and Beyond

Kathleen has played a vital role during her short time with automed. She has developed and enhanced the support and training process, implemented our new onboarding process for new customers, and now holds the role of CXO – Chief Experience Officer.

Kathleen sees automed becoming more influential. “The biggest challenge is that automed is still new,” states Gilman. “As automed continues to gain customers, word will spread because of how well the system works. I believe that automed is set to become a major force in the livestock industry and I’m thrilled to be a part of it.”

  1. Kathleen,

    My name is Jen Fagan and I do events for a company called FarmHer. To give you some background, FarmHer was founded 5 years ago to shine a light on women in agriculture. We feature these women through photography, our FarmHer tv show on RFD-TV, and at events all across the country. Among those events is our “I am FarmHer” event that is a yearly event that connects, empowers and inspires women who have a passion for agriculture. This year’s theme, ‘Faces of FarmHer’ celebrates an array of inspiring FarmHers from across the country with a network of 200 attendees, both producers, and professionals.

    This year we are excited to announce that we are bringing our I am FarmHer event back to our home state of Iowa, June 17-19, in Des Moines. New to this year’s event is “The Cube”. The Cube is an interactive and creative space where industry meets FarmHer(s). Companies, both large and small, will present their latest and greatest innovations for the advancement of the agriculture industry with the attendees at the I am FarmHer event. We have partnered with the Cultivation Corridor to bring this workshop to over 200 FarmHers who will be in attendance.

    I am reaching out because we have been busy putting together an amazing lineup of companies to present in the Cube and your name keeps coming up! We would love to have you be a part of this portion of the event and think you would be the perfect addition to our I am FarmHer lineup. The CUBE workshop is on Wednesday, June 19th from 10AM-12PM. We will have 4 Tedx style speakers. The Cultivation Corridor will kick off the CUBE and then introduce each speaker before they present. Each speaker will talk for 20 minutes on the latest and greatest innovations their company is working on for the advancement of the agriculture industry followed by Q & A. There will be a brief intermission 1/2 way through. We will have 2 larger companies and 2 smaller/startup companies that will be speaking.

    I realize you are an extremely busy person, we would welcome the opportunity to grab a coffee, lunch, or a chance to talk on the phone to discuss the details. Let me know your thoughts and if there is a day/time that works best for you.

    I appreciate your time, thanks so much!
