Kirsten has always been interested in agriculture, primarily due to her family's small horse farm. Unfortunately, her high school did not offer agriculture classes, nor did it have FFA. "No one in my town knew much about agriculture, which pushed me even more to achieve the goal of becoming an agriculture educator."
Kirsten's advice for others is to ask questions! "If there is something you don't know much about, then ask questions. You will meet some amazing individuals along the way!" She adds, "Don't limit yourself to what is offered to you. Go out and learn new things."
