Supervisor (term expires December 31, 2018)
What is your professional background?
I was born and raised in the Flathead Valley on the same farm where I currently live and farm. I studied diesel mechanics at Northern Montana College in Havre and now, in addition to farming, I do contract and forestry work.
Why do you serve on the board?
I came on to the board to fill a vacancy and discovered that I really enjoyed the knowledge and experiences I was gaining as a board member. There are always new situations with projects and natural resource issues to learn about and to help landowners resolve.
What projects/programs interest you most?
The Conservation District helps landowners find a way to get their projects done in a way that works for them and still protects the resource. I enjoy working with landowners to find these solutions. I also like to see local landowners benefit from our cost share programs and scholarships.
