Her father was a hunting guide and outfitter for many years to make ends meet, inviting guests from around the world to their ranch in which Rebecca worked alongside too.
Rebecca learned the importance of partaking in these “off the beaten path” experiences that initiate conversations encouraging knowledge sharing resulting with her becoming a strong advocate for both Agriculture and Conservation. She is well versed in both areas, including having an extensive professional education in the agriculture sector and having been published.
