Becky fell in love with Vermont and organic farming during a high school semester at the Mountain School in Vershire, VT. Two subsequent summers working there confirmed that she wanted to pursue farming as a lifelong career and she began working on farms everywhere she could. After graduating from college, she managed an urban CSA for Denver Urban Gardens, eventually returning to Vermont to the Intervale Community Farm where she farmed for ten years. 

In 2014, she joined her partner, Scott, at Singing Cedars Farmstead in Orwell, Vermont, and in 2016 began to work for UVM Extension. Her focus with Extension is working with vegetable growers on soil health management with a participatory approach that highlights the innovations and incredible knowledge of farmers. 

Her admiration for the brilliance and deep kindness of farmers fuels her work both on and off the farm. Becky also loves spending time skiing, biking, and hiking, especially in the good company of her friends and family
