Dairy, Equine

513-967-5904
Three years after joining the National FFA Organization, I was elected as the Ohio FFA Vice President, and shortly thereafter selected as the Ohio Fairs' Queen. Through those roles, I traveled the state teaching and advocating for agriculture, visiting all 88 counties at least once. I enrolled at The Ohio State University to study animal science with an emphasis in dairy. I’ve always enjoyed agricultural-based student organizations and OSU was no exception. I joined the Ohio State Diary Judging Team and knew I’d strive to stay in the agriculture industry after graduation. Working with Paul Hall & Associates, I’m able to help protect today’s producers in a state and industry I love.

I was lucky enough to be raised on a small diversified family farm in Wilmington, Ohio. Our farm consisted of mostly hay and grain crops and many different animals. I now have my own home on the same family farm where we raise market goats and assist with a market turkey production. I spent my youth heavily involved in 4-H and FFA and I am now a 4H advisor in Clinton County. I will be graduating Wilmington College in May of 2018 with a bachelor’s degree in Agricultural Business. Agriculture has taught many valuable lessons and given me opportunities to learn and grow as an individual. My life is deeply rooted with Agriculture and I look forward to being able to serve and protect others in this industry.

Growing up, we always raised a garden and I really enjoyed visiting my Uncle Tim's farm in the summer. He raised chickens and cattle and I loved being able to collect the eggs each morning. There were some days it seemed we picked beans from daylight until dark! He relied on that garden and those cattle to feed his family through the winter. In my home, we just went to the store when we needed something. I didn’t fully realize until I grew up that many people relied on those same means, as my uncle did, to sustain their families throughout the winter. In our family we now purchase all our beef, pork and eggs from local farmers to help them support their families. We also like to know where our food is coming from. I am thankful that I have a role at Paul Hall & Associates that allow me to work with farmers and their families on a daily basis.

I grew up in Adams County on a small, diversified farm. I graduated from Wilmington College with a Bachelor of Science and a Fine Arts degree. I joined the Adams County Farm Bureau Board of Directors in the Fall of 2017. I married my high school sweetheart, Jason, 13 years ago and we have four young and active children. We spend most of our time in the great outdoors on our farm in Adams County. We currently have 15 hives of bees and process honey in the Spring and summer.

Even though I was raised on a small beef farm, I never really understood what agriculture meant to me until I enrolled in FFA as a high school freshman. Four years later, having served as an Ohio FFA State Officer, I realized just how much my passion had grown for the industry. After majoring in agricultural communications at Ohio State University, I worked as an Organizational Director for Ohio Farm Bureau before returning home to work with my father. I’m eager to provide insurance expertise for the entire agricultural community with an agency fully dedicated to protecting Ohio agriculture.

Swine, Grain, Pollution Liability

937-783-5980 ext. 2103
Having grown up on a grain farm in southwestern Ohio, I’ve always had a deep understanding of the farming community. My desire to support agriculture and farm families led me to pursue a Bachelor’s of Science degree at Wilmington College. After graduating, I joined Paul Hall & Associates and have become the agency specialist in swine, poultry and grain operations. Today, I still get to spend time each spring and fall helping out with our family farm while also volunteering with local 4-H clubs throughout the year. I appreciate the life lessons agriculture has afforded me and helping to protect farm families enjoying the same lifestyle I value.

Growing up on my family’s dairy and tobacco farm, agriculture has always been a part of my lifestyle. It wasn’t until I began studying at Wilmington College that I understood the role it had in shaping me as an individual. I majored in Business Administration with a concentration in Agriculture, but wasn’t sure how I’d be able to apply my agriculture education professionally. Today, my background is a solid foundation for my role at Paul Hall & Associates where I work in an industry that taught me work ethic, appreciation for our resources, and the value of time spent working with family to make a living.

As a sophomore at the University of Kentucky I was elected President of Kentucky 4-H. After serving as an ambassador for agriculture, I knew that I wanted to make a difference for farm families. Through serving as an Organizational Director for Ohio Farm Bureau for nearly 10 years, I saw a need in rural areas for someone with insurance expertise and a passion to serve Ohio’s agriculture families. Now, after 25 years, I am most proud of having an agency with a staff that is truly dedicated to and believes in the future of agriculture.
