I moved to Stillwater county in 1998 and began serving the people of Stillwater county as an extension agent.

In my spare time my wife and I raise Morgan horses and use them as much as we are able, go bow hunting, and go fishing in the high country just south of us. We also enjoy watching our daughter, Emma, as the world unfolds before her.

Ashley has lived in Stillwater county her whole life. She is a true Montana girl who loves to enjoy the outdoors. Whether she spends her time hunting, fishing, camping, hiking, 4-wheelin', or just sitting outside admiring creation, listening to nature, watching the clouds roll by, the beautiful sunrises, the sunsets that only Montana has to offer, she's the gal. She graduated from Columbus High School in 2012 and attended Pensacola Christian College in Florida where she recieved her Associates degree in Office Systems in 2014. She followed her heart back to Montana after graduation. Not too long after mobing back, she was engaged to the love of her life. They purchased a piece of property & a cabin in October of 2014 to call their home when they got married in May 2015. She heard about a job position that would better her and her future famalies future and applied not knowing what to expect. "I was thrilled when I recieved the extension position for Stillwater county. I knew this was the perfect job I had been searching for to further my education and help the people in my community. I love putting my abilities and skills into action in bettering others and the community we live in. I look forward to seeing what I can offer to this county both now and in the future." Now we have started a family and I am so excited to see what the future holds for my family and I.
