“I now manage the sustainable agriculture and rural development policy portfolios for the ranking member of the U.S. House of Representatives Subcommittee on Agriculture on the Appropriations Committee. I am also about to graduate with my masters in agro-terrorism. The education I received from the Political Science Department at MSU Denver supersedes my Master’s education, and has definitely helped me in my career.”
