How did you enter the seed industry? I grew up within the agriculture sector and had the desire to continue working in a similar setting, however, my experience in the seed industry began once I accepted this position with Curtis and Curtis. Before this journey, my knowledge about seed and the seed industry was quite limited. There is most definitely a learning curve associated with taking on this type of role, but I was eager to take on this challenge.

I am able to apply my experience from my education to my day-to-day duties.
What is your favorite product you sell? My favorite product to sell is the warm season native grasses we specialize in. I am continuously around this particular product inside and outside of the office which allows me to be quite familiar with it.
