I cannot be urban sans rural.
I cannot be urban sans rural roots.
Just as I cannot be me sans rural genes.
I am only afforded opportunities to travel this world because my past gave me the blessing of an educational foundation in communications and international agricultural.
Which opened the door to a first job as a marketer for Oklahoma’s pork producers.
Which led to launching a social media presence showcasing Oklahoma’s tourism industry.
Which led to digital storytelling for global agricultural and animal health brands.
Which led to launching my own business working with passionate business owners.
Which led to spending more time with my family.
Which leads to standing in the “retirement pasture” gazing at Oklahoma’s tremendous sunset thanking God for the past that affords the opportunities for my future.
