“From southern Illinois’ rice fields along the Mississippi River bottoms and SIU’s soy bean genomics labs to the Chicago Board of Trade floor, agriculture touches everyone. But there’s no story without the people who are deeply rooted in ag — they are who make our stories come to life. There so many people to meet yet.”

“I thoroughly enjoy the opportunity to visit farmers’ operations and the trust they give me to tell their story. No two operations are the same, and that’s why it is so fun to learn how each farmer develops unique ways to make his farm a successful enterprise.”

“Traveling to every corner of central Illinois along with trips to Brazil, Louisiana, Washington, D.C., New Hampshire and Iowa have provided me with a previously unimaginable perspective of today’s agriculture. Meeting with top executives of major agricultural companies, scientists, university researchers, national and state political leaders, commodity group representatives and farmers with thousands of acres to only a few and delivering that information to our readers are highlights of my AgriNews experience.”

“In my career as a newspaper reporter, I’ve learned that everybody has their own unique and interesting story to tell. I enjoy traveling around the state, seeing all the amazing places each region has to offer and showing and telling these incredible and unique stories.”

“I am so excited to start my career at Indiana AgriNews. Growing up, I showed Boer goats and entered a creative writing and photography project in 4-H every year. My love for farm animals, as well as the land, in general, grew over time. At the intersection of agriculture and writing is the agricultural Communication program at Purdue University, where I found the home of my ideal major. I believe agriculture is an important, exciting and growing part of Indiana, and there is nothing else I’d rather write about.”
