I grew up on a diversified grain and livestock operation in West Central Iowa. On our family farm, we raise(d) cattle, hogs, poultry and produce corn, soybeans, and alfalfa. Additionally, our family operates a welding and repair shop and tiling business among other endeavors. 

I am 2013 graduate of Kuemper Catholic High School in Carroll. During high school I was very engaged within the Carroll Area FFA Chapter; serving as a chapter officer, competing on the state and national levels in LDE/CDE's, and being a servant in community service initiatives. As I moved into college I studied abroad, became heavily involved in campus clubs and organizations, interned in a wide variety of agricultural industries, and networked with industry professionals all over the country and world. Much of my intentions revolve around seeking out experiences that I can pass along to students. I have a genuine passion for developing the next generation of young agriculturalist who will provide food, fiber, and fuel for the world. 

I hope to provide our community with a well rounded agricultural education program that develops students' leadership capabilities, personal growth, and career skills.
