Hi! I’m Jenny Rees, Nebraska Extension Educator serving York and Seward Counties. Previously I served as the Extension Educator for Clay County (and surrounding region of Nuckolls/Thayer/Fillmore Counties at various time-frames) for 12 years with an additional 2 years in transition. My degrees are in agronomy, crop protection and plant pathology from UNL.
I grew up on a small crop and livestock farm in Northeast Nebraska where I learned to love the farm and outdoors. My 4-H experiences helped me develop life skills such as public speaking, leadership, and plant identification-all of which I often utilize in my Extension career. My faith is an important part of my life. These experiences have shaped the way I approach Extension. I think and work with a system’s perspective with projects and problem solving. I also appreciate learning from the people I serve.
I really enjoy Extension for the flexibility and opportunity to help people. Every day is different-I never know what questions will be asked or what plant problems will need diagnosed, but I enjoy the challenge and change everyday! In Extension our mission is to provide unbiased, research-based information to the people we serve. Hopefully you will find this blog helpful for answering your agricultural production questions in addition to horticultural and other questions I receive in the Extension Office!
