Being a positive example is important to Lisa and this belief is what lead her to pursue her chosen profession as an educator. Not only does she teach on the importance of agriculture as it relates to our future, but she also strives to instill values like humility, hard work, and integrity. When time allows Lisa enjoys participating in team roping, barrel racing, and working on the family dairy farm.
“As a first generation American, and someone who did not come from an equestrian background, I quickly found a way into the equine industry. Through my experience and education I have evolved into a woman who is passionate about horses, rodeo, agriculture, and the western way of life. I was not chosen by this lifestyle, but I chose to make it my lifestyle. The equine and agriculture industries have brought me more joy and happiness than I could have ever imagined, and it is my calling to give back to the industries that have given me everything by serving as an enthusiastic, proud representative. As Miss Rodeo America I will be able to serve as a spokeswoman on a larger scale, as a living example of how it doesn’t matter where someone comes from or what their circumstances are – anyone can accomplish anything they put their mind to.”
The Miss Rodeo America organization is excited to work with Lisa for the next year while she is traveling the United States as the official representative of the Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association.
