Katie Dilse, the moment she enters a room; you know she’s there. The energy elevates, laughter builds, smiles grow and hearts open. This feisty North Dakota farmer, with an undeniable spirit on fire, is on a mission to empower agriculture. She is a business owner, wife, mother of four boys, and Big Rig driver, working extensively across the U.S.and Canada to bring vast life experiences to the stage to inspire a passion for life that will feed your soul.
Identified as one of the Top 40 Under 40 business leaders in the Midwest, The Business Watch magazine recognized Katie for professional development, community contributions, and her influential voice. The Federal Reserve Bank of Minneapolis relied on her reports to advise their agriculture decision makers. The Great American Wheat Harvest captured this North Dakota farm girl in its award-winning documentary. Katie loves tractors and work boots, yet as a guest at the National Ag Day in Washington, D.C., and a Finalist for Farm and Ranch Guide Country Woman of the Year, she was comfortable with high heels, and invigorating conversations with others who love agriculture.
