"I grew up on a row crop and livestock operation in Easton, Kansas. I obtained my undergraduate degree in Animal Science from Kansas State University in December of 2013. Currently, I am the State Agriculture Representative for U.S. Senator Jerry Moran in his Manhattan, Kansas office. In this role, I represent the Senator on agriculture issues across the state. I help to inform him on what farmers and ranchers are saying and thinking. I am his eyes and ears here in Kansas when it comes to agriculture. Since January of 2015, I have also been working on receiving a masters degree in Agribusiness from Kansas State University.
I am excited to be a part of the Food For Thought team. FFT is a very proactive group that engages consumers who maybe didn't have the opportunity to grow up on a farm or ranch. I love taking opportunities to speak with consumers about the beef industry. An industry that taught me about hard work and sharing that positive message with the consumer."
