Emily received her B.S. in Natural Resource Conservation with a minor in Organic and Sustainable Crop Production from the University of Florida. She has always had a love of plants, and grew up gardening with her mom and volunteering at her local nursery. While at UF, she assisted in several research projects involving soil and water conservation, forage management, and horticultural crop production. Working at QCS gives her the opportunity to share her passion for sustainable agriculture and learn from farmers with a wide range of cropping systems. When she is not working in her garden, Emily loves the beach, hiking with her dog Grace, and cooking.
