My Story

I've always had an interest in agriculture and working on crop production issues. After graduating from college, I started off as a Field Assistant for UCCE in Sonoma and San Joaquin counties, then managed a research lab out of Berkeley that focused on integrated pest management issues in orchard and vineyards, and was hired as a Yolo County UCCE Advisor in 1992.
