New Ag and Natural Resources Agent Jessica Barnett
Hello! As the new kid on the block, I’ve been told to share a bit about myself as an introduction.
I’ve been a K-Stater since birth and never considered any other school for my education, so this transition into K-State Research and Extension has felt like coming home. My passions revolve around agriculture and the environment, and more specifically around soil and water. This is what guided my education at K-State where I graduated with degrees in Agronomy and Biological Systems Engineering.
During my free time, I enjoy spending time adventuring with my dog, Tonka. He’s been a great companion for road trips to visit family and friends, and we both love exploring the outdoors and hiking. However, re-adjusting this humidity has slowed us down quite a bit in getting out and exploring! I also enjoy cooking and baking, especially learning and mastering family recipes.
I hope that you all will take a moment to introduce yourselves as we cross paths. I look forward to getting know you all and working to serve you as best I can!
