What are you most excited about as a 2020 Judy Schneider Fellow?
I am thrilled to have this amazing opportunity to grow professionally and personally by interacting with and learning from the strongest and most hardworking women in Washington DC!

What brought you to Washington, D.C.?
I had the opportunity to visit DC for the first time as a high school student attending the Electric Cooperative Youth Tour Sponsored by the NRECA. It was during that experience that I realized the expanse of opportunity that was available for women outside the borders of my small rural town. I came to DC to pursue a career with the NRECA and advocate on behalf of rural America.
