Who Are We

Roots & Legacies Consulting, Inc. brings together smart, experienced, connected and passionate individuals all focused on one goal: Empowering Others to Excellence. Roots & Legacies began in 2001 when founders Jackie McClaskey and Sarah Goss worked together to bring professional development trainings to universities and colleges – primarily in colleges and departments of agriculture. In 2017, J.J. Jones joined the organization as it expanded its services to include strategic communication and marketing support, event and project management, association management and overall business operations consulting. Today, J.J. and Sarah serve as managing partners of the organization. Jackie is currently taking a leave of absence to focus on her role as Kansas Secretary of Agriculture.

Roots & Legacies is committed to bringing together the best team to meet its clients’ needs; as a result, the organization works with a number of associates who offer unique areas of expertise and experience but share the deep desire and drive to serve and empower organizations, businesses and individuals who impact the excellence of the agricultural and food industry and rural America.
