What are your job duties/job responsibilities in the College of Agriculture, Food and Natural Resources?
I am the Senior Academic Advisor for the Division of Plant Sciences & Technology. I advise, assist with recruitment, and teach career development for Plant Sciences & Agricultural Systems Technology students.
How long have you worked in CAFNR?
I have been in CAFNR since August but have been advising students at MU since April 1, 2015, no joke.
What do you enjoy about working for CAFNR/Mizzou?
I love how welcoming everyone is, it truly is one big family. Our students are fantastic, I have enjoyed learning more about them and their future aspirations. Faculty and staff are willing to lend a helping hand and are passionate about helping students in any way that they can.
What do you enjoy doing in your free time?
In the summer months, I enjoy kayaking with friends. My family also enjoys riding dirt bikes and making new trails with the side-by-side. Finger Lakes is one place where we can combine our two favorite activities with kids in tow.
What is something your co-workers/other CAFNR employees don’t know about you?
I am a volunteer for my kids’ 4-H club in Callaway County and teach Foods for our younger members. We stay busy in spring/summer with working lambs and preparing for the youth expo.
