I have worked my entire career- nay, life- in Vermont agriculture. Raised on a multi-generation Central Vermont dairy farm, I am a first-generation University graduate. My career arc has traveled from cowshit-shoveler to garbageman to commercial fruit grower to agricultural research assistant. Presently, I am Interim Chair of Plant and Soil Science Department, Associate Professor of Specialty Crops Production and Director of the Horticulture Research and Education Center at the University of Vermont.
I have the best job in the world.
