It's not always easy to be a woman in America, especially in the business world where men often take the lead. However, Ree Drummond is not only turning that stereotype upside down, she's keeping close to her Heartland faith and family values!
Here is what happens when country spirit meets city-slicker attitude!
City Girl To Country Mama
She may be living it out on the land, but she got her education in the big cities of Chicago and Los Angeles!
Despite her humble beginnings as a blogger back in 2006, Drummond has amassed a huge amount of wealth, and that has translated into expansions of property. She is currently the 23rd largest land-owner in the United States with 433,000 acres where wild horses are known to roam free.
This Is TuTu Much
Among the many skills that Drummond has acquired over the years, one of her favorites is her ability to dance. She used to do ballet when she was a teenager, and although she praises it for keeping her flexible, she also points to it as something that saved her life as a youth.
She was nearly the victim of an abduction one night walking back to her car, and it was her agility that got her out of their grasp and away from the criminals.
She could never have imagined how her life would have turned out, and what she had in store in the years to come.
Drummond rose to popularity with her blog The Pioneer Woman, but her fame has now spread across many platforms. She has her own show on the Food Network, an online food community called Tasty Kitchen, a lifestyle magazine, and even a children's book based on her late Basset Hound, Charlie.
Her husband works the family ranch during the day, and Drummond isn't one to shy away from some hard work! She says she often wakes up with him at 5 a.m. to help out with getting the cattle together, and sometimes even wrestle with them herself!
Perhaps her greatest accomplishment has been raising a happy and healthy family of four children with her devoted husband. She home-schooled them herself, and has even published a ton of material to help other mothers do the same with their families.
