I recently met a woman who I have great respect for and can now call a friend.  She is a woman. She is a mother.  She is a mentor.  She is a leader.  She is the president of a very large organization.  She is following her passions and dreams. She is changing the world.

Life is a road full of twists and turns, long and short journeys, bumpy and smooth paths and if we are lucky, many adventures along the way.  On a perfectly perfect spring day, my FarmHer journey led me to the Strickland Ranch in Myakka City, Florida to meet Renee Strickland.

Nobody wants to be a survivor because that means by definition that you survived something tough.  Something horrible.  Something that nobody would ever think could be possible for themselves, nor would they wish upon another.  Barbara Mazurek is a survivor.

Lyna Knight | Episode 2 | The Hardest, Best Work I've Ever Done

September 12, 2016

I should start by admitting that the title quote isn’t mine.  It belongs to Lyna Knight, one of the FarmHers who I had the pleasure of photographing at Lyna Berry Farms in Central Florida.  It’s how she defines her life as a FarmHer, it’s very real and it’s right on point.

“Life’s a dance, you learn as you go….” these words, well sung by John Michael Montgomery, ring in my head as I think about my visit to The Dancing Goat and the FarmHer that runs the popular urban goat dairy, Pam Lunn.  You see, 20 years ago Pam had no experience with livestock.  She worked in corporate America in her home of Tampa, Florida.

Shayla McCullers | Episode 1 | A Family Affair at Crooked Lake Ranch

September 05, 2016

We arrived at Crooked Lake Ranch in the dark, early morning, greeted by the headlights streaming out of a collection of trucks hooked up to trailers, their exhaust creating small clouds in the damp early morning air.  The ranchers and their help had the horses loaded and ready to ride.  We followed the trucks down the road a ways, watching the sun rise to our east, slowly shining a light on the native beauty that is Central Florida.

Changing Your Perspective | Lifting Up Others

September 16, 2015

Packing yesterday was easy - I just swapped out the dirty clothes from the last trip, just 3 days ago.  I arrived at the airport in plenty of time...a full 9 minutes before my flight boarded.  Climbed on the plane all ready to work during what I thought would be my most productive working part of the day - you know, that part when I'm on a plane and can't connect or be mom.  I texted my husband and mom that I love them.  I turned my phone to airplane mode and pulled out my iPad to find it had 1% battery life.  Story of my day.  Let me rewind....

What Does Your Cliff Look Like?

What Does Your Cliff Look Like?

August 27, 2015 1 Comment

Conferences focused on women (and especially women in ag) are always fun, insightful and completely grounding for me. My talk is going to be about “Jumping off Your Cliff” and it starts with one of the biggest cliffs that I have ever and hopefully will ever jump off of.  That cliff was walking away from the career I had built for over a decade to have more time with my kids and to figure out what my next professional dream was.  Turns out that dream was FarmHer.
