Tevyn grew up on her family’s cow/calf operation in the Nebraska Panhandle, north of Scottsbluff. She was involved in the day-to-day ranch work from an early age and developed a passion for raising cattle on native rangelands. She attended the University of Wyoming as an undergrad, majoring in Agricultural Business with minors in Rangeland Ecology and Banking/Financial Services. She also completed a master’s degree in Agricultural and Applied Economics with a livestock marketing project that focused on stocker cattle grazing summer range in northeastern Colorado. Her past work experience has been in the banking industry with time as an Ag Loan Officer and Credit Analyst/Credit Review Officer for Platte Valley Companies. Her underlying dedication has always been to the land. She enjoys being outside helping on the family ranch as much as possible. Identifying plant species, new and old, are among her favorite hobbies.
