Best part of your job: Since I grew up involved in 4-H and studied horticulture, journalism, and agricultural education in college, working in Extension communication is a perfect fit. My dad is a former county Extension agent and current state 4-H specialist in Iowa, and I have great respect for our OSU Extension faculty and staff across the state, who spend every day (and many nights and weekends) serving others. Getting to use what I do well to help others share their work with the world is an honor and a privilege.

Something someone might be surprised to know about you: I’ve kissed the Blarney Stone.
