It's crazy how busy we can get. I was on the phone with my parents the other night and my mom asked me when I was going to write another blog. A wave of embarrassment washed over me as I realized it had been over 6 months since I posted something on this site. Yikes!
However I haven't been sitting idle. The fall of 2016 was a busy one for me as I wrapped up my Nuffield Scholarship. That included writing and editing my final report which can be found here.
As well, I had the incredible opportunity to share my story with a broader audience through the support of Country Guide. I've always enjoyed reading the high caliber articles in this publication and am proud to say that I am now a contributor. If you have a chance, head on over to the Country Guide website and read the article. Better yet - get yourself a subscription so you can always have access to stimulating information which will improve your business!
Thanks to those of you who take the time to read about promoting careers in agriculture! And thanks for the gentle reminder to post a blog, mom. :)
I was raised as the seventh generation on a mixed livestock farm near Guelph, Ontario. Currently I am living in the beautiful Okanagan region of BC, where my husband works for Blue Mountain Winery. I maintain my close ties to Ontario agriculture through my job with AgScape (Ontario Agri-Food Education Inc.) and hope to bring a national, and global perspective to agricultural issues.
