While struggling to decide what to do with a degree in Biochemistry, Jeri stumbled upon the V&E major as a Junior at UCD. Quickly falling in love with the department, she decided to go with her gut and change her major. Since then she has enjoyed the mix of intense work and insane fun, starting her summer tasting her way around France with study abroad and ending it working long hours during her very first harvest. Upon graduation she intends to work international harvests for a few years before settling down in the place she calls home, Mendocino County. Jeri is excited to join the DEVO team this year and looks forward to making DEVO more welcoming to new students like she was not so long ago.
