  • About
  • Education


I was born and raised a "city kid" in Indianapolis, Indiana, but have always been a farmer at heart. My husband and I have three children and just last last year moved out to the country to our very own farmstead. We have a Maine Coon cat, a shepherd-mix rescue dog, and take care of a "pasture ornament" horse. I am a passionate advocate of all types of agriculture, livestock production, genetically modified organisms, and the responsible use of scientific technology and medicine.
