Kimberlee Shulsen

My name is Kimberlee Shulsen. I work for North Side Canal Company. I grew up on a farm in Jerome Idaho. I have one son, Cacey, who is 27 years old. He has a degree in Aquaculture where he works on a Tilapia and frog farm in the valley. Four years ago I moved back to Jerome and bought my grandparents family farm that has been in the family for several generations.

I am proud to be a part of Agriculture. I went to college for Agriculture Business and Water Resource Management. I have horses, goats, dogs, cats, chickens, turkeys, and ducks. I enjoy hunting, fishing and riding horses. In the spring and summer I am passionate about carrying on my grandmother’s tradition for raising a big flower and vegetable garden. I am blessed to have a great family that has taught me strong family values.
