Thank you Juli and welcome Sean!
We want to say a heartfelt thank you to Juli Carrillo for gracefully stepping into the unknown and taking on the role of Interim CSFS Academic Director during Hannah Wittman’s study leave this past year. Juli helped guide the CSFS with keen insight, heart, and dedication. She always looked for what was best for the CSFS and the UBC Farm, and was instrumental in helping us through the most intense period of this COVID-19 crisis. We wish her and her family well with the new baby, and look forward to ongoing collaboration (and baby photos!).
Juli passes the baton on to Sean Smukler, who joins us as interim Academic Director during this most unprecedented time. Thank you for stepping in, Sean! We look forward to working closely with you, even if remotely, from now until Hannah Wittman’s leave ends in July.
