I am a Chautauqua County NY native; recently moved back to the area after 15 years in Northern California. I hold a Bachelor of Science in Agriculture Science and a Master of Science in Interdisciplinary Studies: Integrated Pest Management and Agroecology. I've spent my career working in diverse perennial cropping systems in commercial settings and have knowledge of both conventional and organic practices. Focuses of my past research include pest and pathogen identification, mapping, and management; precision agriculture practices; improvement of monitoring and scouting practices; and determining economic thresholds for treatment.

I have had opportunities to work with commodity boards, growers, and the academic community to determine best strategies and topics in research to benefit local agricultural communities; I look forward to establishing these relationships here in the Lake Erie region. Additionally, my time as a part-time faculty member in the College of Agriculture at California State University, Chico instilled a deep appreciation for the importance of educational programming, and I look forward to bringing relevant and timely content to my grower community.

Following in the footsteps of Andy Muza, I will be taking over the pest and disease scouting updates for the coming season and am excited to start spending some time outdoors. Along with updates about current conditions in our local vineyards, there will be short tutorials on using software, websites, apps, and technology to map and strategize seasonal management plans.
