A leading force engaging people and ideas in building a better future for rural America.
Farm and Community Program
I’ve had the opportunity to work with farmers and rural communities all over the world. I’m now proud to be building sustainable agriculture systems in my home state of Nebraska.
I’m a firm believer that rural communities are the backbone of our society. They serve our food systems and industries as well as the environment and natural resources we hold dear. I believe we have a responsibility to keep these areas vibrant and welcoming places to live and I'm grateful to work for an organization advancing these goals and values.
I’ve worked in food security for most of my professional career and am happy to bring that experience here. I look forward to becoming a resource for beginning farmers and landowners, rural schools, and those looking to make a positive impact on our lands and communities.
In my spare time, I like to get outside and explore. I enjoy hunting and fishing, canoeing our waterways, and further getting to know the Great Plains.
