Why did you choose to work at High Plains?
I chose to work at High Plains Farm Credit because I am a true believer in the cooperative system. Instead of the earnings being split between a select few, it is shared with all of our members through Patronage Dividends! I specifically chose to work at High Plains Farm Credit because it is one of the few Farm Credits left that is truly locally run. Loan decisions are made locally by the people on the front lines visiting with the farmers and ranchers, not from 500+ miles away.
High Plains Farm Credit is where I received my start as a beginning young producer 10 years ago. They believed in me when other financial institutions didn’t. I knew from that point forward, I wanted to be a part of the High Plains Farm Credit Family.
What is the best part about working at High Plains?
The people! We get to work with the best people in the world, whether it is our customers or our co-workers.
What is your favorite part of your job?
My favorite part of the job is spending time on borrower’s farming/ranching operations. I truly enjoy learning each customer’s history and how High Plains Farm Credit can help them reach their future goals.
What is your business philosophy?
Your success is very important to me. The more your business thrives, the better ours does.
What do you like to do when you’re not at work?
Like many of us at High Plains Farm Credit, Agriculture is my way of life. I spend most of my time away from work back on the family farm. If I’m not behind the desk, I’m behind the wheel of a tractor, sprayer, or combine.
