I’m thrilled to be back at school after some years of raising a family and considering my next professional move. My background has been in communications; I earned my BA from Washington University in St. Louis. A love of plants and nature has been life-long for me, whether I have been gardening, beekeeping, educating others, or growing a field full of flowers. I am working towards a career and life that will enable me to have a hand in minimizing climate change. I’m especially interested in soil health and removing our excess atmospheric carbon dioxide through soil carbon sequestration.
