Summer 2013: Retirement News

Regional Report Ventura and Santa Barbara Counties by Julie Newman


I retired from the University of California Cooperative Extension on July 1 after over 28 years of service. It’s been a very rewarding career and a fantastic place to work! Although I am looking forward to this next chapter of my life, I have enjoyed working with all of you and will certainly miss you.

Unfortunately, due to budget constraints, my position may not be replaced. However, this is not a final goodbye. Although this is my last regional column article for UCNFA News, I will continue to work as co-editor and assist UCNFA in any educational events planned in Ventura or Santa Barbara counties.

I also plan to assist Michael Parrella and Don Merhaut on their Hansen Trust research projects currently underway. Thank you so much for all the support you have provided me over the years and best wishes.
