Meet Our Team (post 2 of 3)

Our first 'meet the team' post was a big hit, or maybe it was just Ernie's Instagram account :)

Read on to learn more about the team members in Extension Technology. Introducing .... Patrice, Terri, and Libby!

Patrice Johnson, business analyst / registration What do you like best about Extension and/or Ext Tech? The people I work with! And the programs!
What’s a favorite project you’ve worked on?  Getting registration up and running back in the day. It was a brand new project and we started from scratch. I like feeling that I contributed to an important and successful service.
If you had to eat one thing for every meal going forward, what would you eat?  Pizza or tacos (as long as I could vary the ingredients on/in them). Or popovers filled with creme fraiche, cured salmon, and caviar.

What do you like to do outside work? Write, cook, and teach (I cook and teach to support my writing habit.). I also have a wicked TV viewing habit and book collection.
What’s something most…

Field Report: Andover Regional Office

As part of a new initiative to connect technology more closely will the field work of Extension throughout Minnesota, representatives from our team are visiting Extension offices and events throughout the state. Please join us on our adventure!

We kicked off this adventure in Andover in April!

Destination: Andover Regional Office
Miles Traveled: 20 mi, one way
Time on road: 1 hour, round-trip
Tech Team Members: Amy and Karen
Number of swears I had to remove from this video: 3 (ALL MINE)

I learned all kinds of things in my first Field Trip to a Regional Office! For example, did you know there is such a thing as the "Coffey Hall Bubble," or that Andover is the self-proclaimed Most Fun Regional Office? I also see my first Regional Office server and attempt to find the root of their internet connection.
