What is your favorite aspect of agriculture?
“I like being around livestock every day. I used to show lambs but now mainly work with horses and my grandpa’s commercial cattle.”

Who is the most influential person in your life?
“My mom is the most influential because she’s solid and the best coach for barrel racing anybody could have. She’s also my best friend and taught me everything I know helping make me who I am today.”

What is your current involvement in agriculture?
“Currently I am involved in raising both commercial cows and horses as well as barrel racing. I was an officer in FFA in Cameron and at the end of September transferred schools. My involvement with FFA here right now is selling Blue and Gold products like beef and chicken and anything else the chapter sells to raise money, something I really enjoy.”

What is your favorite agricultural memory?
“The first thing I remember in agriculture is bottle feeding calves when I was very little but perhaps my favorite memory is learning welding from Mr. Jeremy Krebbs in an ag class at Cameron.”

What are your future plans?
“Barrel racing is very important to me and I plan on continuing to compete. I want to go to a college where I can be on the rodeo team for barrel racing while pursuing becoming a physical therapist assistant.”
