Research Interests

I am interested in aspects of cultural and social development and transmission in youth and the effect of each toward learning and teaching in career and technical education. More specifically, how agricultural education can attain a broader perspective on cultural implications, both socially and demographically, for recruitment and retention within agricultural education programs across the state of Kentucky.
