A winding road of career choices brought me to GRIT 17 years ago, and it's been a good fit. I will continue to be the person behind, as I have been for the last few years. I grew up in a small town in north-central Kansas, learning early that I am most definitely a child of the High Plains. I adore the wide open spaces, seeing for miles over the rolling prairie and feeling the wind on my face – although I’ve discovered in the last few years that time on an ocean is as much of a balm to my spirit as a visit to the wide-open prairie.
I am also the blog editor for both GRIT and Capper's Farmer.
