As the Executive Assistant to the Board, I work with the WCA President, Tyler Cox, and the WCA Board on projects large and small to aid in the WCA mission of promoting and preserving the beef industry through producer and consumer education, legislative participation, regulatory scrutiny and legal intervention. I grew up on a farm and ranch just north of Kittitas, WA where I developed a passion for agriculture and the cattle industry. I recently finished my studies at Oklahoma State University majoring in Agribusiness and am thrilled to have the opportunity to be back in the beautiful Northwest again.  My office door is always open, and coffee is always brewing, never hesitate to stop by!


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.
