I grew up on a dairy farm in the Scottish Borders and have always been driven to find information and solutions to agricultural challenges. The agricultural industry has so much potential and I am constantly inspired by the ability of farmers, their persistence and commitment to survive change, this is why I enjoy working in the industry. My role as Knowledge Exchange Manager at AHDB has given me the opportunity to visit farms all over the UK seeing how the network of thrives, especially when information can be shared. I have also been fortunate enough to travel and meet growers across the world.
