What causes are you most passionate about?
I am very active in fundraising for my grade school (Our Lady of the Presentation) and university. Serving on Missouri’s CAFNR Alumni Board of Directors, I have the opportunity to help raise awareness and funding to ensure students have access to scholarships and a great education.
Who is someone you admire, and why?
My father. Growing up, he always supported my interests and encouraged me to try new things. As I’ve gotten older, I have seen his impact on our local community. His great reputation has always been well-founded. Treating others with respect and gratitude — personally professionally — I’m always striving to be like my father.
Are there any particular trends in ag data that you are excited about?
I am very excited to see the continued advancements in animal agricultural data, particularly production performance and efficiency when it comes to animal welfare. The hemp industry is also ready to take the next step forward in terms of production and market stability.
