Where are you traveling?
The bottom of the world, aka Antarctica
What’s your background in agriculture?
I grew up on my family's dairy farm in Northeast Iowa, where I developed a strong passion for all things agricultural oriented. I was fortunate enough to be involved in great FFA and 4-H programs, which helped lead me to Iowa State University to pursue a degree in Agricultural Communications.
What is the most interesting agriculture industry you have seen on your trip?
This trip was focused on non-traditional agriculture since we traveled to a more desolate place because of the climate. Being able to witness penguins, seals and whales in their natural habitat is indescribable. The scenery down there is so extremely beautiful and I hope to go back one day.
Why are you a FarmHer and what does agriculture mean to you?
To me, agriculture is the backbone of our country and the future of where we are going. Being part of this ride is the only place that I want to be and being a FarmHer makes it even sweeter because of how farm women have come in this industry.
What are some of the similarities you seen amongst women in ag around the globe?
All the ladies that I have seen are extremely hard working in all of their crafts, whether that be taking care of the land, animals or their families.
