Born in Sioux Falls, SD but raised in Omaha, NE.

Received my BS in Horticulture, emphasis in Plant Science from the University of Nebraska, Lincoln.

Moved to California after graduation and began working at Foundation Plant Services at UCDavis.

Began an MS in Plant Pathology at UCDavis involving viruses in grapevines, which turned into a PhD.

Graduated in Sept. of 2016 and am now in a post doctoral position at FPS and the Plant Pathology Department at UCDavis, spending half of my time doing education and outreach and the other half surveying vineyards for viruses.

As a side note, during much of my college career I worked in ornamental nurseries, a winery and even bar tended for a few years.
