Rhonda Smith
Viticulture Farm Advisor, UCCE Sonoma County

My Story:

The first time I knew I wanted to be a farm advisor when I “grew up” was when, as an undergraduate, I first worked in field trials in several counties that were collaborative projects with a UC Davis plant pathologist and UCCE viticulture farm advisors—all of whom are now retired. It was obvious those advisors had a commitment to help growers be successful. Years later (and, now, years ago), I was chosen to fill a farm advisor position. I still consider myself incredibly fortunate to be able to work with and for people who are committed to the development of knowledge that can help people succeed.
