City Goes Country Girl

Growing up in a bigger town in Western Nebraska was a defining experience for me. I always knew that I was destined for something greater, that there was a bigger calling out there waiting for me. And so, after graduating high school, I packed my bags and headed off to the University of Wyoming, where I earned a minor in Health Promotion.

But that was just the beginning. I knew that I had to keep pushing myself, keep striving for more. And so, I continued on to Weber State University, where I graduated with a degree in Radiation Therapy. It was a challenging path, but I persevered, knowing that every step was taking me closer to my ultimate goal.

After graduation, my journey led me to South Dakota, where I worked at a cancer facility. But it wasn't the right fit for me, and I soon found myself drawn to a new adventure. For over 10 years, I sold supplemental insurance to farmers, building strong relationships with the hardworking people who make our country great.

And then, fate intervened. I met my husband on a blind date during my career with selling insurance, and and I wasn't about to let him go. We were married the following year, and soon welcomed two incredible little boys into our lives. Together, we are living on my husband's 5th generation family farm, raising our children to be strong and independent, just like their father.

But it wasn't until 2020, one of the most challenging years of our lives, that I truly found my purpose. (Watch Episode) I realized that life is too short to do anything other than what you were put on this Earth to do. And so, I dug deep and found my passion - serving the amazing Ag community in more ways than I could have ever imagined.
