Jesse joined UNH Cooperative Extension in 2022 as a Field Specialist in Agricultural Business Management in Rockingham County. Jesse is a New Hampshire native who has provided technical assistance to NH land stewards for nearly a decade. She has a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration from Babson College and a Master's in Environmental Law and Policy from Vermont Law School.
As a member of the Agricultural Business Management Team, Jesse works with farmers in Rockingham County and throughout the state to build strong business skills and develop supportive networks. She loves to brainstorm with producers about marketing, sales channels, and record keeping. “For me, it’s all about keeping farmers on farmland,” Jesse says, “Understanding how money is flowing through a farm business is a crucial part of long-term farm viability—I love working with farmers to set up good record keeping systems so that they can make data -driven farm management decisions.” She’s also committed to helping farmers connect with additional resources in our region as agricultural service providers, suppliers, customers, funders, and other farmers are all key touch points in a successful agricultural community.
When not working with farmers on farm business management, she loves to explore the White Mountain National Forest and Saco River with her pup, Tadhg.
