Gigi Gonsalves – Cultivating Connections Grad Assistant

I’m a graduate student in Agricultural Leadership, Education and Communication within the CAES, and my research focuses on science communication and storytelling. I’m also a graduate assistant for Crop & Soil Sciences, in which I’m on the planning committee for the AFHVS/ASFS Cultivating Connections conference. I hold a BS from UGA in Agricultural Communication with a minor in Spanish and a Sustainability Certificate. In undergrad, I was president of Education Abroad Ambassadors, a site leader for IMPACT UGA, and a communications intern for the Sparrow’s Nest and Classic Groundcovers, Inc. Outside of being a student, I enjoy producing music, photography and running. It’s also worth noting I have a cat named Avocado.
