hey there!

I’m not your average rancher.

I grew up in the Denver metro area (population 3 million), and was pretty sure I was going to be a professional snowboarder (ha), a fashion designer (less ha but still ha) or an environmental lawyer when I grew up.

Spoiler (but no surprise): I did not end up doing any of those things.

What I did end up doing is falling in love with ranching, marrying a cowboy, and never looking back.

Along the way, in between raising baby boys and cows and keeping the wheels on, I’ve discovered a passion for connecting to people outside of the cattle industry that I call home.

It can be tough to form connections between people who grow food and people who, well, don’t.

When I was working on my college thesis, I went to research and intern with some ranchers my mom knew through work, and I want to form meaningful relationships with the people who consume the food that we are so happy to grow without belittling them, namecalling, or making them feel “less than” because they did not grow up on a farm or ranch. I want to give others the opportunity that I had to be invited in to learn more about ranching and farming and give other like-minded advocates the tools to do the same.

People want to know where their food comes from. I’m here to do that better.

Because of where I grew up, I can build bridges that others can’t.
