About Me

All my life has been spent on the farm and has been full of places that are only reached by traveling down an old dirt road. Its this farming background that has fueled my love for all things agriculture.  It was only fitting I pursue a degree in animal science.  Since I was 12 years old, i knew i wanted to be a vet.  My passions in life all revolve around agriculture.

Whether its traveling the rodeo circuits as Miss Rodeo Missouri 2011, working my bucking-bred heifers in the field, or taking photos of my chuckwagon racing family, my life is filled with all things ag. Along the way, i’ve found that most of the places I’ve been and will travel to can be reached by backroads.  These hidden highways filled with nature and barbed wire fences help me see the beauty in an all too hectic world.  Removed from the cities, the pavement, and the people, Backroads and Barbed Wire is my outlet for all things fueled by the industry and by the love of my heritage.

Every now and then, the long way home makes for the most relaxing and enlightening moments.
