Rep. Kristi Noem: “The work ethic is something I’m very proud of now”

Today is American Business Women’s Day, when we commemorate and recognize the contributions of women business leaders, small business owners, and working women across America. Rep. Kristi Noem (R-SD) joined us for the latest in our Snapshot video series on to discuss her responsibilities on her family’s farm and ranch.

“One of the reasons I grew up to be a strong woman, was because my dad never doubted that I could do anything the boys could do,” says Noem. After losing her father in a farming accident, she left college and returned home to take on new responsibilities. Watch her talk about how that experience made her the person she is today.

Women all across America are reaching new heights in all areas of business. Rep. Noem is just one example of the strong female leadership that we honor today, and every day. We invite you to join us in celebrating the trailblazers and innovators who make America the best place to live and work, and may we inspire their work for generations to come.
