It is with mixed emotions that I share the news of my departure from Virginia Cooperative Extension. It has been an amazing experience getting to know each of you over the years, and I am better for knowing you! The role of extension agent is truly a calling, and I leave to pursue that which I believe to be my highest calling - a mother.

Please know that you can still reach out to our office and surrounding county offices for your agricultural needs, and we will be sure to put you in contact with the right folks.

Thank you all! I'm sure I will see you around!
