 Time with ANR 15 Years
 Typical Day No day is the same. One day I am in the field walking a ranch and doing research in a stream. The next day I am meeting with community members to develop solutions and organize programs. Of course sometimes I have to push some paper but the variety in the ways in which I serve is welcome.

 Most Memorable Moment There is one almost every week. They are the moments when the information we provide is useful to a rancher, partner organization, or group of short course participants. It happens on a farm, over the phone, through email, and in the classroom.

 What I love Most About Working for ANR The people - those we serve and partner with, our county counterparts, and our colleagues. We work collaboratively to find solutions to the challenges facing California.

 My Story I served in Peace Corps in Niger from 1989 to 1991. There I learned first hand how access to information and the role of community development could make a difference in people's lives. When I returned and began graduate school at Davis, I was fortunate enough to work with Cooperative Extension Specialists and Professors and see the opportunity to make research and science contributions at the grass roots level.

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