Where are you from?
I was born and raised in Yuma, Colorado. Growing up in a rural agricultural community developed my appreciation for farming and ranching from a young age. Today, my parents still live in Yuma, and I gladly make the drive home to visit whenever I get the chance.
Tell us something most people don’t know about you…
In high school, I was active in our school drama club. I loved to sing, dance, and act on stage. I can’t say I have carried my acting talent past high school, but I do love to sing Karaoke now!
What did you study at CSU?
I have a Bachelor of Science in Animal Science with a minor in Agriculture Literacy.
What is your favorite activity to do in Colorado?
In the summer, I love to golf. I started golfing at a young age, and it has been a favorite hobby ever since!
What is your greatest accomplishment?
During college I was a member of the 2016 Livestock Judging Team at CSU. While most of my teammates judged when they were younger or in junior college, I had never judged until I was on the team at CSU. Having little to no prior experience meant that I had to work extra hard to earn a spot marking cards (judging) on the floor. I am proud to say that I got to mark cards at multiple contests throughout the year. Today I am thankful for the skills I learned and I value the life-long friendships and relationships that I made through livestock judging.
Why are you excited to work at CCALT?
After graduating from CSU, and with a broad range of agricultural experiences and an ag background, I struggled to find my place in Colorado’s agriculture industry. I’m excited to plant my roots at CCALT and to work for an organization that connects with both agriculture and conservation. I am eager to learn more about CCALT’s ties to the Cattlemen’s Association and I am honored to be part of the team.
