As the Executive Vice President, I report to the Board of Directors and administer all programs and activities of the WCA.  I look forward to building membership and involvement in the association as well as helping members with the challenges they face daily as they raise cattle in the state of Washington.  I was born and raised in the Palouse Region of Washington, growing up on a ranch and wheat farm.  I attended Washington State University and Kansas State University earning bachelor's and master's degrees, respectively, in Animal Science & Industry.  Since finishing school, I have been fortunate to work in the cattle industry for Agri Beef Co. and Allflex USA, Inc.

Bev Cridlebaugh, Office Manager

I am the accountant and office manager for the Washington Cattlemen’s Association.  My duties range from planning the annual state convention to assisting members on projects and committees.  I greatly enjoy working with the members of the WCA and WCW and look forward to each new adventure here at the Cattlemen’s.  I was born and raised on the Westside of the state where my family grew beef and dairy cattle. After raising my family my husband and I decided to settle in Ellensburg. 

Pam Lewison, Communications Coordinator

I am the communications coordinator for the Washington Cattlemen's Association. My duties include updating the website, social media feeds, and running Ketch Pen. I am relatively new to the position but love getting feedback and am looking forward to being able to grow this new facet of the WCA's outreach. I earned bachelor's and master's degrees from Washington State University and Texas A&M University in Creative Writing and Agricultural Leadership, Education, and Communications. I grew up on a farm in Moses Lake and my husband and I are continuing that family tradition with our children.
