Plans to Serve Georgia Green Industry:
As a faculty member and an extension specialist in a land-grant institution, my goal is to make a significant contribution to the green industry and the society as a whole, striving to address pressing societal problems to positively impact the community.
I will be working closely with Georgia Green Industry Association (GGIA), the Georgia Urban Ag Council (UAC), Center for Applied Nursery Research (CANR), and county agents throughout Georgia to provide support for the Winter-Green, county agents and all the growers in need. I plan to establish virtual education programs, coordinate applied research programs, and develop workshops, short courses, trainings, and certificate programs based on clientele needs. My ultimate goal in this position is to provide service that’s in need and in time for the Georgia green industry.
