About Me

I grew up in the mountains of North Carolina and am the first person in my family to ever go to college. Here at UNL, I have a 70% extension appointment with the rest being research. I am a ruminant nutritionist by training but I work on a systems level, collaborating with colleagues in Agronomy and Ag. Economics. I spend most of my time assisting cattle producers with using crop residues and annual forages as feed resources. I enjoy learning new things and being able to use that knowledge to help people.
