As Extension Veterinarian, I am responsible for providing animal health information to the farm animal- interested public in Tennessee. I coordinate a continuing education course for food animal veterinarians in the state in order to disseminate recent veterinary medical procedures/research to those caring for Tennessee stakeholder’s livelihood. Conducting this course in conjunction with the Tennessee Cattleman’s convention allows for a free exchange of information and ideas between veterinarians and cattle producers. I also co-coordinate The Beef Quality Assurance program for the state. This program provides training and certification for producers across the state to assist them in providing a quality product to consumers.  I have an appointment with the UT College of Veterinary Medicine’s Center for Agriculture and Food Security and Preparedness. This allows me to keep Tennessee producers informed of healthcare options available to them at the Knoxville campus as well as any disease threat to their herds.  As a part of Office of Laboratory Care ata the university, I am also responsible for the oversight of health and wellbeing of farm animals at the UT Agricultural Experiment Station’s Research and Education Centers across the state. This provides a source of healthy animals to conduct field trials and demonstrations for Tennessee’s producers thereby enhancing their economic viability, quality of life, and generational sustainability.

My research interest include reproductive physiology/diseases of cattle. Along with colleagues from the veterinary medical college, we recently conducted a study to determine the prevalence rate of trichomoniasis in the state. Research studies such as this are critically important to protect the interest of stakeholders across the state.
