Musings from the Office

First of all, I want to let everyone know how excited I am to be on board here at the State FSA office, and I have hit the ground running.  All of our team here has been putting in a tremendous amount of effort getting me up and going on not just office operations, but the multiple things going on all around the State.  I have had the opportunity to meet some of you, and I am looking forward to meeting the rest of you.  I am planning on visiting as many of the county offices as possible thru the remainder of this year, and it is a goal of mine to visit all of your areas throughout this next year.  Several years ago I developed a vision for my own farm, it was ‘Enhancing production, embracing Heritage, and establishing a Legacy’.  And this is the approach I am using in my new role.  Constantly look for ways to be more effective and efficient, find out what has worked or not worked in the past, and utilize that perspective to find a solution and path forward that works.

From my own personal experience and the comments that I have heard from many people, I know we have a great FSA family in Kansas and I am proud to be part of that team.
