SFREC was in need of a pair of interested, capable, and flexible hands for the summer to help with a renewed effort to communicate the broad array of activities currently underway and outline the many opportunities for research, education and outreach at the Center. We were fortunate to hire Maddison Easley for the job. With strong roots in the local agricultural community and an accomplished Agricultural Communications student at Cal Poly San Luis Obispo, she is a perfect fit for the position.
1) Communicate what SFREC has to offer researchers, educators and the broader agricultural community
2) Connect those interested in rangeland management, watersheds, beef management, and other focused agricultural and natural resource based topics with SFREC
3) Confirm relationships to encourage long-lasting, mutually beneficial partnerships
When asked about a guiding philosophy for her career development Maddison quoted Ralph Waldo Emerson, “Unless you try to do something beyond what you have already mastered, you will never grow.” Many of us can relate to this mindset as a stimulus of agricultural innovation and the larger entrepreneurial mindset driving our agricultural and natural resource communities. She is off to great things, wish her well when you have a chance.
