"I am so honored to have been nominated not once, but twice, by family members independently! It means a lot to have my family so supportive of my efforts in our operation, as well as my work to advocate for agriculture. They are the reason that I do what I do! I’m humbled to be singled out, as well, because there are so many farm moms who work every day to build a legacy for their children. I’m proud to represent the SW Region."
"I’m passionate about the opportunity to share my family’s experiences with other moms and families about how, where and why we farm the way we do. We need people to understand that what we do affects them now and generations after us. Farmers understand that and work hard so that future generations cannot only survive, but thrive."
"I am thankful to be able to work alongside my family in an industry like agriculture that makes such an impact globally."
"I was so surprised and excited to find out I was the NE region’s Farm Mom of the Year. It's so wonderful that Monsanto recognizes farm moms who help keep the farm and the home together."
"I was so excited and proud that I was chosen. It is a real honor to be recognized for what you love to do!"
