Mobley is a native of Tifton, Georgia, where the Rural Center is located on the campus of Abraham Baldwin Agricultural College, and serves as the center’s logistics and operations manager.

What is one item that's produced in rural Georgia that you would not want to live without? "Fresh produce is my favorite product of rural Georgia. I love that there is a produce stand on every other corner in rural Georgia during the summers."
