AMBER MOSKALYK – Region 9
Amber was raised on a mixed cow/calf and export timothy hay operation north of Cochrane. After finally admitting to her addiction for agriculture, she attended Olds College and attained a diploma in Agricultural Production and an applied degree in Ag Business. In 2005 she moved to Fairview to work for an applied research association, met her husband and moved her cows up north. Together they run a mixed cow/calf and grain operation outside of Fairview. She had always heard that once you drink water from the Peace River you would never leave, and boy was that ever the case!!! Amber started crop inspecting with CFIA in 2005, and worked for them until the end of the season in 2013. She took 2014 off after having their first daughter in July, but went back to work for private industry the next year.
“I have a real passion for the certified seed industry and its growers, so much so that last summer I was known as the "crazy pregnant crop inspector" roaming around the fields. I had our second daughter in September, which was perfect so I didn't have to miss out on another crop inspection season.”
Amber is looking forward to re-connecting with the growers and getting out to spend some time outdoors in one of the most beautiful places in the province.
