She came to this position with a variety of technical and research experiences in organic and sustainable agriculture with a focus in integrated pest management, cover crop use, soil building, and compost use. She has served farmers across the globe, from Niger and Malawi in Africa to Central California, Pennsylvania and Michigan in the US. Vicki holds a Master of Science degree in Plant Pathology and Extension.
