Helping #Montana ranchers communicate the great work they do. #OkState alumnus, #RedDirt music, #IHeartBeef, #Runner. Thoughts are my own. I'm Agriculture Proud
Introduction

My passion lies in cattle ranching. I enjoy reading historical accounts of the cattle industry and those involved in forming our past. I advocate for the voice of farmers and ranchers when it comes to conversations about our food supply. I have a Bachelor's degree in Animal Science and am currently studying for a Master's degree in Beef Cattle Reproduction and Nutrition from the University of Tennessee. I enjoy following college football, exploring the outdoors, am a sporadic runner, and have an addiction to good Mexican food. Live in Helena, Montana, working with ranchers across the state.
