 Title Master Gardener Volunteer Program Coordinator
 Location UCCE Napa County
 Time with ANR 17 years
 Typical Day I manage the Napa County UC Master Gardener program and the program's volunteers. I assist with volunteer training and help coordinate the Master Gardeners' public outreach programs for home gardeners in Napa County.

 Most Memorable Moment I love sharing the excitement of discovery, figuring out how to solve a gardening problem in the least toxic way using UC resources.

 What I love Most About Working for ANR Helping people find resources to help them become more successful in their garden. Helping make gardening fun rather than a chore.

 My Story I had a friend who previously held this position and she told me she thought I would enjoy the job. It was the first time I ever read a job description that seemed to really fit me and all my interests. I love working with UC, the volunteers, and the public. I appreciate being connected to the most current research-based information from UC and being able to pass it along.

Here's to another 100 years of science and service!
