🐴 What do I enjoy outside of work?

Outside of work, my true passion lies in horse riding. I’ve been working on re-establishing my own herd for the past five years, and you’ll find me on horseback every chance I get. My kids, Bowen (10) and Bentley (7), share my love for riding. My daughter competes in youth rodeo, while my son rides for fun. I also enjoy barrel racing whenever possible, although Bentley’s schedule is slowly taking over mine!

🎣 Something surprising about me?

I have a hidden love for fishing! We have a small farm pond behind our property stocked with bass, bluegill, and catfish. I’m on a mission to catch “Walter,” the giant bass that has eluded me so far. He’s broken my line three times, and I’m determined to reel him in!
