I’ve always loved the sciences and exploring new things, which naturally led me to NewLeaf! After working in Microbiology and Nanoscience, I jumped at the opportunity to expand my lab skills into plant pathology and beyond. My love of gardening was cultivated from an early age by helping my dad with our tomato garden during the summers (and by helping, I mean playing in the dirt). I’m excited to be part of the sustainable agriculture movement, linking my love of nature to my love of science. When not at work I spend time with my beautiful family.
