I was an 11 year 4-H member in northeast Missouri and grew up on a diversified livestock and grain farm. I received my B.S. in agricultural education from University of Missouri - Columbia and my M.S. in agricultural education from Oklahoma State University. I have previously been an auditor for a large agricultural cooperative, worked as a graduate assistant in the Oklahoma State 4-H office, worked in Career Services and Human Resources. My passion is helping youth attain their goals and develop life skills.
