I am a 5th generation rancher out of Arizona and now live in the Rio Grande Valley on a hay farm with my husband and 4-year-old son. We farm alfalfa, wheat, and grass hay year-round which keeps us busy. We go back to Arizona to help my family gather and brand cattle twice a year, to keep our iron in the fire. I am lucky enough to have the opportunity to have a lifestyle that is filled with all thing’s agriculture sprinkled with my love for education.
