Bryce graduated from Dordt College with a degree in Agricultural Business. During college he spent his time in sports, experimenting with hydroponics and volunteering at the NRCS. Post-graduation, his interest in soils and agricultural sustainability led him to work at an Agricultural Research Service (ARS) station in Cheyenne, Wyoming, then to the University of Wyoming for an MS in Soil Science. He then moved back to Iowa to serve as the Watershed Coordinator for the newly founded South Skunk River Watershed in Mahaska County, which exists to work with farmers and landowners to improve soil health and water quality. The watershed project is an extension of the Water Quality Initiative (WQI), a statewide effort to reduce nitrate loading in surface water. As Watershed Coordinator, Bryce assists with conservation project funding, survey/design, practice implementation, and conservation education.
In his free time, Bryce lends a hand on the family farm, serves as President for a nonprofit called the Southeast Iowa Dream Center, and co-owns a real estate investment business with his wife, Brielle. For fun, he enjoys being constructive, road/mountain biking, and traveling.
