YF&R Representative to State Women’s Leadership Committee
Katrina and her husband Troy have been married for 6 years, and together the last 13 years. They have twin girls, Hadley and Christy, who are two-years old. They also have five dogs, all blue heelers, plus one Jack Russell, three horses, and a herd of cattle.
She and her husband are part-time farmers with an 80 head of beef cattle, cow/calf style operation. They also cut hay, pick grass seed, and grow various crops for their cattle such as rye, oats, millet, peas, etc. Katrina and Troy are always looking at something “new” to get into so our operation is ever-expanding.
Katrina works for the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Rural Development Agency as a multi-family housing loan specialist.
She attended the University of Florida and received her Bachelors of Science in Food in Resource Economics with minors in Leadership and Agricultural Law in 2008 and a Master of Science in Food in Resource Economics in 2010. She later received her Bachelors of Accounting in 2014 from St. Leo University.
In her spare time, she enjoys cooking, traveling, boating on the river, and spending time with the family, wherever that may be.
Katrina has served on the Women’s Leadership Committee since 2017 and serves as the Young Farmers and Ranchers representative. Her favorite part about being on the committee is “being part of such a fantastic group of women who accomplish some amazing things. I look forward to bettering my leadership skills and bringing new ideas and knowledge to my county. The friendships made within this organization as a whole are by far the most amazing part of my involvement with Farm Bureau.”
