I was born and raised South of Sheldon. Today, I am the
location manager in Boyden; however, I started working for
Farmers Coop Society in September 1999. I began my career on the outside
crew; working in grain and agronomy. I dumped grain, applied fertilizer,
and sprayed for the location. After working at this location for 17
years, I became the location manager. My favorite part of my job is the
interaction with the producers. Growing up in this area and being in
this location for so long, I have developed meaningful relationships with
the local growers.
