My interest in community and economic development was first sparked as an undergraduate at Smith College, where I worked on a series of development projects in collaboration with local government and community organizers. This work drew me to a series of professional opportunities in community finance and inspired me to pursue a master’s degree in Environmental Economics through Department of Natural Resources and the Environment, where I conduct research on agriculture and rural development.

There is new attention to rural America with a focus on economy and community. Rural economies have not rebounded the way larger urban areas have in recent years. There has been a loss of jobs and an outmigration of people – especially young people.  This has led to a renewed interest in the health and success of rural America. Radically Rural offered new ideas, a national audience, lots of walking and a pitchfork challenge. Extension was well represented at the two-day conference invited as speakers and joined as participants.
