We provide management and financial consulting to farm business owners and operators.
I am Ag because I specialize in I providing management and financial consulting to farm business owners and operators. I have never felt complete as a person without serving agriculture. I took a leave for a year to do a Kellogg higher education leadership experience and missed my farm students and customers. I returned quickly to serving agriculture knowing I was in the right place for me. My definition of agriculture is the focus on producers of food, feed, fuel, and fiber and the industries that support them. 100% of my consulting work is supported by agriculture. My mission is to help family farm business move to the next level in accounting, planning, management, and transition planning.
I taught Ag production & Ag Mechanics for 22 years at NW Iowa Tech College and South Central College. I made a career change to Farm Business Management education at SCC and worked with farmers in that capacity for 20 years. I am proud to say that when I left SCC; two positions were created from my one position-a rarity in this era of faculty cuts. I am in my 7th hear as the owner and key employee of ELCEL Solutions, Inc. providing a variety of Farm Financial solutions to farm operators. I have also done agricultural volunteer work in Ukraine, Uganda, Republic of Georgia, and Ghana through Farmer to Farmer programs. I continue to teach Farmworks Accounting workshops and co-teach two 3-day early career Ag lending workshops which now attract enrollees from across the USA.
