Uretha seeks solutions to problems and not lament that our stakeholders  might be faced with difficult challenges. Uretha recognizes that women (in agriculture) needs a strong advocate to promote our interests; and as a principal advocate and all that it serves, she further believes that we are all accountable to each other and the land, and it is our responsibility to leave this world in a better place than how we found it.

I pledge to be an unapologetic advocate for women advancement in agriculture and elsewhere. Uretha was born in Miami, FL, and married her grade school sweetheart Andrew. They are proud parents of two remarkable sons.
