How has Farm Credit helped you with your career/professional development? I have learned so much from working at Farm Credit. When I first arrived, I wasn’t aware of all the equipment that farmers needed to be successful at their trade.
If you weren't working at Farm Credit, what would be the most likely alternative? If I did not work at Farm Credit, I would definitely be at a local bank because helping others finance their dreams has become my passion!
What is something you saw recently that made you smile? Something that recently made me smile was seeing my daughter out on the volleyball court giving it all she had. Also, when she is on the bench still supporting her team, that makes this proud mom smile.
