When her father retired from the U.S. Army, he moved 3-year old Sine and the rest of the family to Buckeye, Arizona. Sixteen years later she married her high school sweetheart Bill and the two of them have since had one son and three daughters who are all now married. They have ten grandchildren with one on the way.
In 1980, Sine and Bill started their dairy business with 15 cows. Thanks to hard work and dedication, today they have 1,100 milk cows and 800 replacement heifers. Sine’s passion for agriculture extends beyond their farm and dairy as she sits on the AZ Farm Bureau’s Board of Directors and is serving her first term as the Women’s Leadership Chair. She also advocates frequently on behalf of AZ farmers and ranchers whenever the opportunity arises.
Her other passions include family and children’s issues, caring for and serving our veterans (five consecutive generations in her family have served in the military), and education issues.
Sine also serves on the Buckeye Valley Chamber of Commerce and was appointed to the Maricopa County Air Quality Hearing Board. Sine is the chair on the AZ Department of Agriculture’s Food and Agriculture Policy Advisory Council working to address food insecurity issues in our state.
