How long have you been employed at KSU? I started on March 1, 2017

What do you enjoy most about your role?  I like that my position is a split appointment, so I do research, teaching and extension work.  I am also really enjoying mentoring graduate students.

What has been one of your favorite moments at Kentucky State?  I really enjoyed working with the children at the Rosenwald Center for Families and Children. We had a school garden there and the children are always excited to do activities that involve the garden.

What is one thing you couldn’t live without? My wonderful husband.
