I began my career with NRCS in 1979 as a student trainee at the Holdrege, Nebraska Field Office. While attending UNL, I worked in the soil survey laboratory and water resource sections in the Nebraska State Office. During the next 20 years of my career with NRCS, I worked in Lexington, Nebraska and Grand Island, Nebraska as a soil conservationist. When the need arose, I detailed to Aurora, Osceola, and Central City. In 1983, I became the District Conservationist at Columbus, Nebraska and remained in that position for eight years. In May, 1991, I was selected to fill the District Conservationist position in Crawford, Nebraska. In August of 1992, the NRCS office was moved to Chadron for co-location.
NRCS is the primary source for technical expertise and assistance required to address environmental priorities. The staff is actively involved in providing technical assistance related to improvement of rangeland health, water quality, irrigation water management, wind and water erosion.
