Best job with the most variety
I have the best job with the most variety in all of UK. I may be filming youth exploring a creek with our 4-H Extension agents, producing content in multiple languages for our diverse stakeholders or following students across Europe as they discover what it means to travel abroad. The variety in circumstances coupled with planning communication messaging for these audiences means there are never boring days.View open staff positions
Talented colleagues in CAFE from diverse backgrounds
People and opportunities. I am very fortunate to have talented colleagues in CAFE from diverse backgrounds, who enriched my career and life in Kentucky. The wonderful opportunities at CAFE also helped me establish a strong network of fruitful, international collaborations with fellow scientists in Brazil, South Africa, China, Australia and Canada. It is always nice to have great colleagues at home and across the globe.View open faculty positions
Working with and for Kentucky producers and stakeholders
My favorite thing about working in CAFE is the ability to work with and for Kentucky producers and stakeholders. Our producers and stakeholders are some of the most innovative people I have ever met. It is truly a joy and honor to go to work each and every day to be challenged by them and to work with them to solve complex problems that will benefit Kentucky.View open extension positions
