She raises grass-fed beef and free-range chickens. When she’s not wrangling kids or cows, she’s a Public Director for the Lebanon County Conservation District, Board member for the PA Grazing Lands Coalition, host of the podcast The Graziers Grapevine, and if we ever get to have a primary election will be running for office to be a Lebanon County Republican Committee member.
