Jessica earned a B.S degree in Environmental Protection from WVU in 2007, with a minor in Soil Science.  Her coursework placed specific emphasis on soil and water conservation, which allows her to better serve agricultural producers in Allegany County with Nutrient Management Planning.  Jessica provides guidance to local producers in the areas of soil and manure sampling and spreader calibrations, and applies test results to write nutrient management plans for producers.  These nutrient management plans allow producers to remain in compliance with MDA regulations, while simultaneously preserving soil and water quality and also helping agricultural producers increase profits by eliminating unnecessary fertilizer applications.  Jessica previously worked as the Nutrient Management Advisor for Allegany County in 2008 and 2009, and she was happy to return in 2016 to assist local producers again.
