Hey Now RH!

This is largely a repost from Facebook. My apologies if you've already seen it there!

I'm thrilled to be able to finally share that I have been offered (and accepted) a Presidential Management Fellow position as an Agricultural Economist at the United States Department of Agriculture Headquarters in Washington, DC.

This position intersects perfectly with many of my personal and professional interests. I will be working in not one, but three different offices -- the Climate Change Progam Office, the Office of Energy Policy and New Uses, and the Office of Environmental Markets. This means I'll be involved in a diverse set of tasks, including helping to coordinate the USDA's response to climate change, representing the USDA in international climate change negotiations, developing and coordinating USDA renewable energy policy, programs and strategies, and overseeing exciting new emerging markets for carbon sequestration, ecosystem services, and water quality trading, among many others.

I couldn't possibly be more excited for this opportunity. My thanks to all of you for your support during this long journey to better myself, including sharing your thoughts on what graduate school I should attend, which I asked for more than two years ago now! I can't believe that I'm finally in a position where I can work to leave the planet a slightly better place than I found it, and I'm eager to get started.

If you'd like to read any more information about the offices I'll be working in, you can find it at the link below. They're the first three offices listed -- https://www.usda.gov/oce/about_oce/offices.html

And if you'd like to know more about the Presidential Management Fellowship, and why it's such a huge deal, you can read about that here -- https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Presidential_Management_Fellows_Program
