The purpose of Extension is to disseminate research results and knowledge beyond the campus, specifically to farmers and consumers. This mission to provide applied information directly to our producers and consumers is what directs my extension focus.

Samples of extension presentations and resources developed during my time at Kansas State University and the University of Maryland Extension are below.

I served as the Faculty Extension Assistant for Beginning Farmer Success Program from August 2014 to August 2015. This position required me to provide and coordinate statewide introductory workshops for beginning farmers on various topics including agribusiness, livestock production, crop management, and more. I worked closely with County Extension Agents to provide curriculum and series information in effort to reach beginning farmers across the state. Partnerships with other agriculture groups allowed us to address the issues of land, labor and capital for our beginning farmers. A sample of my presentations and resources developed are below.
