I am the University of Wisconsin-Madison & Extension Southwest Regional Outreach Specialist for the Nutrient and Pest Management (NPM) Program. The goal of my position is to work with county partners in the Southwest region to deliver educational programs that promote farm management practices which protect water quality while maintaining or improving farm profitability. I recently earned a master’s degree in Agroecology from UW-Madison where I researched cover crop establishment issues following commonly applied corn, soybean, and wheat herbicides, cover crop termination, and cover crop interseeding. I am originally from Walnut, IL and earned BS degrees in Soil & Crop Science and Agriculture Business from University of Wisconsin-Platteville. I can be contacted at 608-219-5170 and e-mail address is firstname.lastname@example.org.
