Jesse joined UNH Cooperative Extension in 2022 as a Field Specialist in Agricultural Business Management in Rockingham County. Jesse is a New Hampshire native with a passion for understanding all things agriculture. She’s provided technical assistance to NH land stewards in previous roles for the NH Association of Conservation Districts as a Conservation Planner in partnership with the USDA’s Natural Resources Conservation Service, and for the Upper Saco Valley Land Trust as a Local Food System Advocate. 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. 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.

As a Field Specialist in Agricultural Business Management, Jesse will work with farmers and agricultural businesses in Rockingham County and throughout the state to build strong business skills, develop networks and connect businesses with resources and expertise that will help them succeed.  

“I’ve long admired UNH Cooperative Extension," says Jesse, "and I couldn’t be more excited to work with farmers as a Field Specialist in Rockingham County. As we continue to reshape what our local food systems look like in a post-pandemic world, we have the opportunity to navigate new pathways to greater success for farms across the state. I’m looking forward to listening to the business needs of NH farmers and working alongside an already exceptional Extension staff to meet those needs.”
