My background

I grew up on a cattle ranch in the Black Hills of South Dakota. As a young girl, I learned farming, ranching and land brokerage from my father and grandfather who owned a tri-state agricultural and pasture land brokerage firm. I have three grown children and seven lovely grandchildren in whose education and welfare I participate fully. My family is very important to me, and I work hard to insure their well-being.


Bachelor's Degree in English with a minor in Communications & Debate and course work in Interior Design.
