A 5th generation ranch girl born in eastern Wyoming, I married a western South Dakota farmer and rancher in 2013 and moved three hours from where I was raised. My family has used horses for cattle work my entire life, and as with any other ranch related task we thoroughly enjoy riding together and recollecting memorable horseback adventures, both good and bad, with a laugh. I love all that the ranching lifestyle encompasses, and spend much of my time helping my husband with the daily tasks on our operation. I also work as a freelance journalist and photographer for multiple regional, national and international publications, and work in various ways to educate the public about where their food comes from. I have a penchant for good coffee, a mini dachshund who swears she is the best cow dog in the world and expensive taste in camera equipment, bulls, and jewelry. I am incredibly blessed to live the life I do!
