Growing up in the Lockeford and Lodi communities is an upbringing that I am extremely proud of. As a young girl, my grandfather was involved in many aspects of agriculture production and he shared his passion with my mother and her sisters.
That passion was then passed down to me and my brother. I started my journey in becoming an agriculture teacher by showing at the San Joaquin County Fair as a young 4-H member. The fair was something my family looked forward to all year long. It was a time I fondly remember — the time to showcase our animals, our hard work, participate in the auction, be with my grandparents, parents and my brother and reconnect with friends that have since become lifelong friends. It was definitely a family affair, and I loved celebrating my birthday there every year.
