Greetings from Delaware’s New State Conservationist
I just want to begin by saying, “thank you.” I arrived in Delaware a week ago with my husband and two sons and already the employees and partners whom I’ve met with have made me feel welcomed and at home. I am grateful.
To those partners and employees that I have yet to meet, I look forward to personally introducing myself to you. We are planning an open house in early December. If I haven’t made my rounds your way, I hope you will come out to see me and the new USDA Rural Development Director Bill McGowan. Open house details are forthcoming.
My goal is to help Delaware NRCS strengthen its programs, expand initiatives and support partnerships that help us get conservation on the ground. I know that Delaware is a leader in conservation and I only want to further our impact. However, in those areas where we can strengthen, I want to offer my expertise to meet those challenges.
I am ready to get to work in the Great state of Delaware. I have an open door policy and look forward to your insight about agricultural, environmental and related topics statewide.
Thank you again for all of your support and expect to hear from me soon.
