I am a scientist with a love of plants, nature, agriculture, and food. As a farmer’s daughter growing up in the Finger Lakes Region of Central New York State, my curiosity about these topics started at an early age and I am excited that my journey has allowed me to turn this passion into a career.
Currently the Trials Manager at Harris Seeds/Garden Trends, I am a graduate of the Horticulture and Plant Breeding, Genetics, and Biotechnology Programs at Michigan State University, and the Plant Science Program at SUNY Cobleskill.
The goal of this blog is to encourage an appreciation and understanding of where our food comes from, as well as the importance of including scientific knowledge when establishing our personal values and opinions. If there are topics in plant science or agriculture that you’d like to learn more about, please let me know!
