Horton has lived in Culpeper, Virginia for 33 years. Before joining Farm Credit of the Virginias, Horton worked for a local law firm where she was able to assist clients with real estate transactions and had the opportunity to interact with Farm Credit on occasion.

When asked what she will miss most about working at Farm Credit, Horton answered, “I truly am going to miss being here, and will especially miss my Farm Credit family.”
