Kaleb was born and raised in rural Mankato. He attended St. Clair Public High School and later went on to study at the University of Minnesota, Morris. He double majored in Global Business Management and Farm Drainage Management. His senior thesis was on the inadequacies of Governor Dayton's 2016 buffer initiative.
Since graduating, he has worked in his family's farm drainage surveying business, Air-Row Surveying, LLC. Through his work in the family business, he has been involved in multiple cost sharing and government grant discussions on better water management practices for farmers. He is also a member of MNLICA (Minnesota's Land Improvement Contractors of America), which is a trade organization that includes lobbying for farmers and land rights in the Minnesota legislature. In the fall of 2017, Kaleb began studying to become a land realtor and in early 2018 he began studying to become a real estate appraiser.
In the past, he has enjoyed helping restore his great grandpa's 1930 Model C Case tractor with his dad and grandpa. Kaleb is looking forward to helping you find the right piece of land that can be managed and passed on for generations to come!
