In addition, Lambert raises Great Pyrenees livestock guardian dogs and works full-time for Farm Credit as a loan officer.She grew up in the suburbs of Chicago, which gives her a unique perspective on the farm story. She shares this perspective on her blog Uptown Farms—most recently in her post If you’re thinking about marrying a farmer, stop, which takes an honest, humorous look at what it’s really like living the farm life.Lambert is a new member of the American Soybean Association’s (ASA) Advocacy Communications Team (ACT), a second-tier of first responders who engage with the public, reporters and social media followers on matters of modern agriculture. Her blog is just one example of how this group is working as ag advocates.last_img
