  • Work history Owning Partner at Grand Junction Farmstead

What do you do on a day-to-day basis?

I am fortunate enough to spend my days outside working to regenerate the land while growing nutrient-dense fruits and vegetables for the Grand Valley community to enjoy. From starting seeds in the greenhouse to selling our produce at farmer's markets to producing compost for the next round of plantings, playing in the fields is how I spend most of my days. 

The Sustainable Agriculture program at WCCC has relationships with many local farmers and ranchers. This connection provided me with great insight into the agricultural community around the Grand Valley. The hands-on experiences and knowledgeable staff brought reality into the classroom.

What was your transition like from being a student to your current career position? 

After spending an internship working in the field, the transition to full-time employment on our farm was smooth. I knew what to expect when arriving full-time at Green Junction Farmstead.

What advice would you give to incoming college students?

The learning opportunities are yours for the taking. Enjoy the relationships, savor the diversity, and always challenge yourself to keep things fresh and adventurous.
