Director’s Message

I am the Northern Plains Regional Director for the NCDEA. I am the District Manager at the Mercer County Soil Conservation District in Beulah, ND. I’ve been with the district about two years.

Prior to this, my career has spanned natural resource conservation/agriculture in the non-profit sector and in state government. I feel very strongly about not only acting as in an advisory capacity to constituents seeking conservation information but also serving as an advocate for the importance of conservation and agriculture around the world.

On top of managing the Soil Conservation District, I also ranch on the banks of Otter Creek. We raise registered longhorn cattle for roping/rodeo cattle and specialty valued added production.
