A leading force engaging people and ideas in building a better future for rural America.
Women’s Business Center Director
Rural Enterprise Assistance Project (REAP)
Born and raised on a cattle ranch near a small town in southeastern Idaho, I grew up and worked in a small family-owned business and have an intimate understanding of the ups and downs of that way of life.
I'm very excited to work with everyone at the Center, while continuing to strengthen the network of partners across the state that share our values. I'm looking forward to forging new partnerships, as well. As I start to make goals for this position, I hope to enhance and build on existing programming and implement ideas that are creative, purposeful, and sustainable.
Rural communities are a crucial component to thriving agricultural, natural resources, and other like industries. And, while I have enjoyed the benefits of rural America, I have also witnessed the complex issues that face its citizens in the 21st century. Helping to ensure a bright future for all members of rural communities is very important to me.
My new fiance and I love to spend time outside in nature, hiking, exploring, or riding horses and working cattle, and look forward to experiencing all Nebraska has to offer.
