Short Profile

I grew up on a ranch in western South Dakota where my family raises registered Angus cattle and performance horses. I am currently a sophomore attending Dickinson State University majoring in Natural Resource Management with an Equine Science minor where I also compete in college rodeo. I've been involved in rodeo since I can remember, and it has been my passion ever since.


I compete in the barrel racing in the NIRA, SDRA, and NRCA.

Why do you want to represent Kimes Ranch?

I would like to represent Kimes Ranch because I love helping other people and telling them what works for me in hopes that I can make a difference for both the company and customers! My motto has always been "look good, feel good, ride good" and I believe that Kimes Ranch clothing gives me that edge and confidence that I need to compete at a high level.
