Jennifer is interested in organic agriculture and sustainability metrics among many other things. Her research focuses on defining the most effective method of data collection and information dissemination for inciting long-term sustainable management on organic farms.
Jennifer graduated with a History major from the College of Wooster in 1992. She received her MS in Environmental Studies with a focus on Environmental Administration in 1998 from Antioch New England Graduate School in Keene, NH. Before deciding to return to school Jennifer spent many years traveling the country working on a wide variety of environmental issues. Just prior to enrolling at OSU, Jennifer spent three years in Wisconsin managing the sustainability department at Organic Valley. It was during the time there that she realized her passion for research and the desire to contribute to the organic movement through defensible scientific study.
