I grew up in Wisconsin (go Pack go!) and moved to Minnesota in 2013 to attend UMN. I enjoy reading and discussing books, watercolor painting and drawing, camping and being outdoors with family and friends, and volunteering for political campaigns. I'm passionate about creating diverse, equitable, and inclusive working environments particularly within science and research.
I manage the Kaiser soil fertility lab and the Wilson manure management and water quality lab where I work on numerous projects related to nutrient management in MN cropping systems.
