Associate Certified Educator
Meadville, MS 39653-8205
My experience spans 30 years in agriculture as a researcher, educator, consultant and farmer. I hold a master’s in Soil Science and a PhD in Crop and Soil Environmental Sciences. I have been using Holistic Management to manage my own life and money since 1995 and was certified to teach Holistic Management in 1997. I developed the first-edition Holistic Biological Monitoring guide for Croplands (https://holisticmanage.wpengine.com/product/holistic-management-crop-monitoring-manual/). This guide makes it possible for people to assess the condition of the four ecosystem processes on their cropland. I also own and operate a small fruit and vegetable farm in south Mississippi since 2007. During my 14-years working as a Technical Specialist with the National Sustainable Agriculture Information Service (http://www.attra.org), I supported sustainable producers, researchers, educators, and federal land managers throughout the U.S. through one-on- one consultation, case responses, educational workshops, and invited presentations. I’ve authored 33 publications for farmers on a variety of sustainable-agriculture topics distributed by the National Sustainable Agriculture Information Service.
