Kimberly Ratcliff, Manager of Caney Creek RanchIn 2007, Kimberly joined her family ranch after leaving her job with Bloomberg in New York City. She completed the Texas Christian University "Ranch Management Program", and then successfully combined her financial and ranch training to increase productivity not only at her family operation, but also with other producers in the area, including 100 acres of her own. Kimberly’s passion is providing career information and educational opportunities for other ranchers and youth.


Sarah Calhoun, Owner & Founder of Red Ants PantsShe was raised on a farm in rural Connecticut and joins us from White Sulphur Springs, Montana. Sarah was tired of wearing men's work pants, so she created a line of women's work pants that would fit and flatter women, while functioning. She started the Red Ants Pants Foundation, supporting women's leadership, working family farms and ranches and rural communities.
