Kenesha Reynolds joined UNH Cooperative Extension in October, 2019 as the State Specialist in Agricultural Business Management. In this role, she will provide educational programing and expertise to the state’s farmers and agribusiness professionals to support enhanced farm profitability and viability.
Kenesha comes to Extension with a strong background of agriculture and business education. She worked previously as a county extension agent with Rutgers University in New Jersey where she provided business-focused educational programming to agricultural clients. As a post-doctoral economist, she worked with diverse farms in very rural areas of Alabama. Most recently, Kenesha worked as a research associate with the Public Affairs Research Council of Alabama, working with local and state agencies, universities, and other non-profits with a focus in education and economic development.
Kenesha brings a passion for agriculture and for helping farmers develop and expand their operations. “My passion is driven by my personal background as a farmer's daughter,” she says, having grown up on a diverse fruit and vegetable farm in Jamaica. “Our Farm Management Team is thrilled to have Kenesha join us. She brings an excitement, can-do personality, and gets along with everyone she meets. Farmers who have met her have expressed a similar sentiment!” says agricultural business field specialist, Seth Wilner. “We are so excited to learn and grow and conduct programs alongside Kenesha for many years to come!”
