Biography

I am 7th generation Utahn, and grew up in apple orchards. I come from a long line of farmers and educators. I live in Summit County, and have a high elevation garden. I worked in arboriculture 17+ before teaching at USU. I love trees.

Teaching Interests

I have a long and beloved background with arboriculture, but all aspects of horticulture and urban agriculture are valuable to me.
