I grew up on a hay/cattle/chicken farm in Madison, Georgia. I double majored in Animal and Dairy Science at the University of Georgia. After graduation, I managed my family’s hay and cattle operation, and from there, took a job with Krone. My goal has always been to own a company, so when the opportunity arose, I quickly took it and moved my family to Leesburg, Georgia. That's where Elite Ag was born.
I have been involved in farming my entire life. I grew up on a dairy farm, and when I got married, we opened our own dairy operation in Florida, which we successfully ran for 20 years.
