I work as the Horticulturalist Foreman in the EKU Facilities Services greenhouse. As part of my duties, I supervise a combination of full-time, part-time, temporary, and student workers in the production and maintenance of the plants grown on campus. In addition, we care for the Carloftis Garden, Turner Gate, and a native tree nursery containing 450 trees. My EKU experience began as a first generation undergraduate student in the fall of 2006. I graduated with a Bachelor’s of Science degree in Career and Technical Education, Agriculture Education in 2011. I have been employed with EKU since 2013. I am currently pursuing a Master’s of Science degree in Career and Technical Education, Technical Administration. I am excited to serve the Maintenance & Skilled Trades in Facilities Services and Housing and Project Administration as the staff council representative.
