I am a home-grown Southwest Missourian born and raised in Protem. I graduated from Lutie Highschool and moved to Springfield where I earned my degree in accounting and have spent the last twenty years working in agriculture business, key accounts, customer service and human resources. I have a passion for agriculture, rural area development, helping people and the serving the community. I greatly enjoy helping people and getting people excited about things that I am excited about.
Outside of the workplace I enjoy spending time with my three children. We raise registered Simmental and Red Angus cattle and like to keep the roads hot traveling to shows competing both locally and nationally.
