I grew up in a small town in Florida, but it has long been my dream to find a home and live full-time in rural Nebraska. I am pleased to be a part of the Center for Rural Affairs not only to make that dream a reality, but to help others achieve their goals as well.
In my 19 years in this state, I have appreciated the agrarian lifestyle and the down-to-earth nature of the people. I love what small-town communities have to offer. I believe it’s in rural areas where the important work is being done, quietly and without fanfare; it is up to all of us to preserve the land and lifestyle here for future generations.
I most recently worked for the City of Omaha and will put my experience to good use here. I take great pride in assisting the staff of the Center in their endeavors to be the change they want to see in the world.
In my free time, I enjoy gardening, hiking, and riding my motorcycle. Also, my fiancé, Mike Cain, and I work on a project house in Lyons together.
