Shalini is a California native who found a love for agriculture during her college years. She spent a year WWOOFing in Ireland after graduating and came to the realizations that a career in Ag was the path she wanted to take. After returning to the States, she was a NAP Apprentice on the San Juan Ranch with George Whitten and Julie Sullivan.
It was extremely fortuitous that at the Quivira Conference that year (2014), Gabe and Paul Brown held a half-day workshop about their ranch. Shalini knew that she wanted to be on an operation with a diversity of enterprises so she applied for the Brown’s Ranch summer internship. 5 years later with a love of the prairie (and Paul) cemented, Shalini continues to work with Gabe and Paul providing healthy, nutrient-dense proteins to their customers in North Dakota, and recently, shipping all over the United States.
