NAFB Led Kim Miller to Nebraska

Kim Miller (KZEN, Columbus, NE) grew up in west-central Missouri and attended the University of Central Missouri in Warrensburg. After graduating college in 2015, she took a job at a local radio station. “My dream was to become an on-air personality. One thing led to another, and soon I found myself as the Farm Director at that station.” After being there for a few years, Kim and her husband were looking for better opportunities and thinking about leaving the small town where they both had grown up. “One day I decided to look at the job opportunities on the NAFB website. I saw a posting for a farm director position in Columbus, NE. I had never heard of Columbus before and started doing some research. After much consideration, we decided to take the leap and move to Nebraska.” She moved in December 2016, and her husband followed in January 2017 after obtaining a local job. “Without NAFB, I would never have heard of this position. Moving to Nebraska has been a wonderful experience. It has been wonderful moving to a new state and learning about the differences in a community that is just five hours from my hometown.  In my previous position near my hometown, I was able to rely on lifelong contacts in the agriculture industry. Here in Columbus, I have had to learn how to make new contacts and get out of my comfort zone. I never thought I would end up being a Nebraskan, but we have made Columbus our home and plan on staying a while,” she concluded.
