Britney grew up in Salt Lake City, Utah. She graduated with a B.S. in Horticulture from Utah State University in 2007. As an undergraduate, she worked at a plant nursery and assisted some of USU's outstanding Extension specialists, which inspired her interest in Extension. She earned an M.S. in Plant Science from USU in 2010. Her graduate research involved cold temperature protection for vegetable crops grown in high tunnels to achieve out-of-season production. After some valuable internship experiences in student government, marketing, garden consulting, and youth education, she is prepared and excited to join the USU Extension team.
