Women in Agriculture

Jaycey Michelle Lindsey

Jaycey Michelle Lindsey is from the small town Wright, Wyoming where she lived before moving to Laramie at the age of 17 to attend the University of Wyoming. In Pre-Veterinary Medicine, she spent much of her time studying zebra finches in the lab of Dr. Jonathan Prather. Her research led her to apply for and win the Fisher Innovation Challenge, which granted start-up money to start her own business. Jaycey opened Pralee Eggs & Hatchery in 2017. This business combines her research efforts, entrepreneurial attitude, and love of everything chickens. In addition to her entrepreneurship, Jaycey spends her time reigning as Miss Wyoming International 2017, volunteering with the Wyoming After school Alliance, and directing the Wyoming branch of Million Women Mentors. Jaycey will be focusing on our Plan B Agribusiness option. She enjoys creative writing, spending time with her two dogs, Aspen and Candy, her cat, Toothless, and her friends and family.
