Coming from a family whose interests lay in the outdoors and gardening at an early age lead me to pursue a course of study that centered around Botany and Ecology. After studying Biology at the College of Charleston,I took a job at the US Vegetable Lab and realized I had a love of agriculture. Looking to forward my agricultural knowledge, I took a job with Dr. Brian Ward.
