I have thirty years experience in university extension outreach, administration, planning, development and evaluation. My work on climate issues began at 1989 IPCC Mitigation and Adaptation Workshop where I addressed topic of education and outreach. Past work includes working with such agencies as  NOAA, USDA, EPA and Sea Grant colleagues in development of educational workshops and materials on climate change for both formal (K-12) and informal educators at state, regional and national levels.    

I currently teach, conduct research and coordinate extension programs in the area of Community Development.
