As the Soil and Crop Sciences Extension Unit administrator my responsibilities include working with the department head and Extension Associate Director for State Operations to implement strategic initiatives for Extension statewide. I lead the unit through planning and coordination of Extension outreach across the state, and in developing the unit annual budget. I conduct annual performance reviews of Extension faculty, reporting on behalf of the unit and other administrative needs as necessary. I am also responsible for the development of faculty positions and the hiring of new faculty.
I manage an endowed Bennett Trust program in the Edwards Plateau, continue to serve in the capacity of an Extension forage specialist, and teach one class in the spring semester.
