About me

Location Urbana, IL, United States
Introduction I'm a Horticulture Educator with the University of Illinois Extension, serving Champaign, Ford, Iroquois, and Vermilion Counties. I grew up in central IL and received a bachelor's of science in Crop Sciences from the University of Illinois, and a master's of science in Plant Pathology from the Ohio State University. I worked at the University of Illinois Plant Clinic as an undergrad and after completing my MS before joining the Extension service. My passions in life include plant pathogens and my two pet rabbits (who, when they go outside, quickly become plant pests).
Favorite Books Advance of the Fungi, Triumph of the Fungi, Famine on the Wind, Poisons of the Past: Molds Epidemics and History, Nathaniel's Nutmeg
