Meet TNCW's President
I was born and raised in Madisonville on a registered seedstock operation. I knew from a young age that I wanted to be a farmer, to work outside, show cattle, and feed cows. After I aged out of 4-H, it didn’t feel right to just quit something I had given my entire childhood to. Like a sign from above, a family approached our farm about showing and it was then that I found my true passion, which is helping youth. When I was younger, I was on the Junior National Beef Ambassador team through the American National CattleWomen and slowly, I became more involved with cattlewomen across the country. Many of those women shaped who I am today and in turn, motivated me to be an inspiration and teacher to youth. I am honored to be president and hope that I can use this position to connect the women in our state and inspire our youth.
During my two-year term, I want to continue to focus on our youth. Melinda Perkins, Director of Youth Programs & Outreach, has done a great job getting the youth excited and involved, and I want the cattlewomen to aid in the organization's growth. I would not be where I am today if it were not for the Tennessee beef community believing in and supporting me.
