Maurica, a registered nurse by training, has a hand in just about all aspects of her family farm, from the day-to-day labor, to employee recruitment and management, to bookkeeping and payroll. Together with her husband, William Dooley, the family operates Stray Dog Farms, growing about 400 acres of sweet potatoes, as well as milo, soybeans and corn in rotation. Several years ago, the Dooleys began growing produce, which is marketed to grocery wholesalers in Little Rock and Memphis. She is a member of Arkansas Women in Ag and Mosaic and has held several positions within the First United Methodist Church in Forrest City where the family are active members. Maurica and Bill have two children, son Josh and his wife Kathryn who live in Jonesboro and have two sons, Beau and Cash; and daughter Alex who lives in Forrest City.
