Screen Shot 2014-01-26 at 8.23.31 PMAt last week’s State of the Division address, Dave, Deb and I shared some of the highlights from 2013, as well as looked forward to the year ahead. We spent the last portion of our time together answering questions from the audience, who attended both in-person as well as many who joined us remotely.

Over the years I have collaborated on several projects with Mike Boehlje, agricultural economist at Purdue, including:

Most recently we recorded a podcast with Bob Bertsch from North Dakota State titled Working Differently in Extension, based on a commentary on the future eXtension that was published in the October 2013 Journal of Extension.

Listen to the Working Differently in Extension podcast.

Take look at the latest commentary and the listen to the podcast, and let me know what you think.

Position: Community and Urban Horticulturist

Hometown: Portola Valley, CA

# of years at OSU: 6 years starting July 2007

Best part of your job: I love working for OSU Extension Service because I get to be part of an incredible learning community of hard-working and dedicated folks and that I get to learn a TON about horticulture and people everyday.  I also like the autonomy that I have as an Extension agent where I have many bosses, but am really responsible for my own work life.

Something someone might be surprised to know about you: I play guitar and sing country and bluegrass music, at least during the winter months.

Favorite book/movie/album: The original Star Wars, of course, is my favorite movie of all time.  My favorite book: The Man Who Planted Trees.
