Technology is impacting every sector of agriculture. I am proud to be a fourth generation farmer and I am optimistic about the possibilities for my daughters in agriculture because of ag tech. I
am passionate about ensuring that everyone knows that there is a place for them in modern
agriculture. From livestock production to greenhouses and from commodity crops to
aquaculture and vineyards, primary producers are supported by people working in machine
learning, graphic design, market analytics and artificial intelligence. Agriculture needs
technology to meet global food demands. As a host for over 25 international ag trainees, I have
learned about global agriculture and interesting tech solutions being used in other countries. I
have used my voice, as a teacher and entrepreneur, to engage young people in an inclusive
and wide-reaching view of high-tech agriculture. I am happy to support the work of Ag In the
Classroom Canada as it is uniquely positioned to share this message on a national scale.
In addition to being a BAC member, I can be found using ag tech daily as a drone pilot,
equipment operator, 4-H leader, and agvocate.
