Specialty:Forages

Prior to becoming associate head for Extension programs, I served as the state forage specialist for the Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service where my duties included assisting Regional Extension Program Leaders, District Extension Administrators, County Extension Agents for agriculture and natural resources, and other Extension Specialists in developing county, multi-county, district, multi-district, and state-wide programs designed to improve the economic competitiveness, viability, and stability of forage and forage-based livestock production systems in Texas. Following development of these educational programs, I then work cooperatively with Regional Program Directors, District Extension Directors, County Extension Agents for agriculture and natural resources, and other Extension Specialists to implement these educational programs to producers for the state of Texas.  Currently, my duties include serving as the Soil and Crop Sciences Extension Unit administrator responsible for working with the department head and Extension Associate Director for State Operations to implement strategic initiatives, lead the unit through planning and coordination as issues arise across the state, develop the unit budget, develop faculty positions and hire new faculty, conduct annual performance reviews of Extension faculty, report on behalf of the unit, and other administrative needs as necessary.
