Explain your career path

I started out at a different collage and I was going into nursing. I was accepted into the RN program to find out the school no longer offered student loans. I was a single mother and there was no way I could attend. I drove SEMO in Kennett and on a whim, I decided to see what they had to offer. That summer I had worked with Floral Cotton, a company out of Massachusetts.... I absolutely knew agriculture was where I needed to be!!!! When God shuts a door, he opens a window. There is not a day that I do not get up and LOVE what I do. I could not/would not want to do anything else.
