About Elaine 

Elaine Froese (pronounced ‘phrase’), CSP is a certified professional speaker, certified coach, author, and Arlan Academy presenter. She’s a go-to expert for farm families who want better communication and conflict resolution to secure a successful farm transition. As a farmer and mother to the successor of their farm, she understands the culture of agriculture intimately.  

Her expertise is to discuss what she calls the Undiscussabull™ - the bull in the middle of the farm family that no one wants to talk about.
