Brookings, South Dakota, United States
I grew up on a 90-cow dairy farm in southwest, Minnesota. Although today there are only nine dairy farms in my county, I was blessed to grow up with tremendous youth dairy program in my county 4-H and FFA. From this background I have gained a strong passion for the dairy industry. Over the years, this passion has grown strong and diversified as my path led me to school at South Dakota State University and two internships in Wisconsin. My strong work ethic is driven by my desire to make a difference and my thirst for learning. I hope to pursue a career that supports the agriculture background that shaped me into the person I am today.
My top five leadership strength themes are Individualization, Learner, Achiever, Relater, and Developer.
