About Me

Agriculture is my passion. After being raised to learn how to farm and ranch my entire life, I went on to receive a Bachelor of Science in Agriculture Economics from Oklahoma State University. I want nothing more than to be an advocate for agriculture and provide education to those who need help by starting with our youth.

 

One of the partnerships we offer is working very closely with the Library Association and Garvin County Heathy Living Program. We do a week long summer reading program and put on things like the backyard farming series which offers healthy living classes and agriculture classes for the urban community that teaches them how to farm their small spaces. We also have a strong Cattlemen Association for beef and forage production. Not to mention our Horticulture program puts on the annual Garden Zest event for the people of McClain, Cleveland County, and Mid America Technology Center. Last but not least, our 4-H program focuses on livestock, meat judging, and land judging.

 

We have monthly county events and activities for everyone to enjoy! I feel proud to be leading many of these initiatives.
