About Me

I am an educator because I love agriculture and McCurtain County. I enjoy assisting others to become successful in their agricultural endeavors and making McCurtain County a better place to live. I see it as my mission to provide unbiased, research-based information beneficial to the people in our community. Increasingly, I see my role as also assisting people as they sift through the information and misinformation available via electronic means so they can make the best decisions for their individual household, farm or business operation.


I am a proud graduate of Valliant High School, and hold an associate of science degree from Eastern Oklahoma State College; and bachelor and master of science degrees in agricultural education from Oklahoma State University.
