Why did you join FFA?
I joined FFA when I was in 7th grade. FFA is a strong tradition in my family; my grandparents and parents were active, so joining at a young age was always a "must." I enjoy learning about the agriculture industry, testing my speaking and leadership abilities, and teaching young members about my expertise in areas of the agriculture industry. Having FFA imprinted deep into my core values, I have always enjoyed being part of the organization and all that it has to offer!
What was your Supervised Agricultural Experience?
I grew up on a 160 acre Organic Dairy Farm consisting of 50 head of registered and grade Holstein cattle. I have been heavily involved in feeding, milking, fitting, and showing cattle from a young Age. I show at the Waupaca County Fair and the Wisconsin State Fair in West Allis. I have showed over 10 calves at fairs and plan to show three Holstein animals this year. I also own my own herd of Mini Lop and Rex Rabbits. I own 34 Junior and Senior breeding stock and raise them for show, pet, and market. I absolutely adore all of my animals and am truly blessed to be directly involved in production Agriculture.
What made you want to be a State FFA Officer?
I wanted to become a State Officer after attending my first State FFA Convention as a 7th grade member. I went to State convention to compete in the Opening-Closing Ceremonies Contest. I keenly remember sitting in the back of the convention hall and feeling the exciting energy in the room from the opening ceremonies. After that moment I always tried to speak with the confidence like the State Officers and envied them for their leadership abilities.
If you could choose from any song in the world, what would be your theme song?
Hmmmmm, this is a really hard one. If I could choose from any song in the world, my theme song would probably be Live Like you Were Dying by Tim McGraw. I love, love, love this song because it explains my life in so many ways. Live in the moment, never take anything for granted, and live like you were dying.
