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.
