Meet Our 2018 Rodeo Queen,
Stephanie is a Range Science major at New Mexico State University with plans to graduate in May 2018. While attending NMSU she works as a Vet Tech at Arroyo Veterniary Clinic, something she grew to love just as her mother, Fiona, had for so many years. Future goals after graduation include getting a range management specialist position with the Natural Resourse Conservation Service (NRCS). Stephanie says she enjoys helping people sustain the land, so we can utilize it in years to come for the next generation of ranchers and other agriculturists. Her hobbies include team roping on the heel side, skiing, and traveling to new places.
Stephanie is honored to hold the RDSF Queen title as for everyone involved in putting on RDSF is like family to her. She can’t wait to see everyone June 20-23, 2018 for the toughest sport on dirt at the Rodeo de Santa Fe grounds!
