About Janice
Janice grew up a city girl, and became involved in agriculture through college internships. She has carried a passion for it since visiting her first farm while in grad school. Much of her career has focused on cotton and that turned to a personal passion that drove her Twitter handle @JPlovesCOTTON which became a personal brand of sorts. She has found social media provides a great way to both learn and share experiences in ways that can help people better understand agriculture broadly. Her contributions to Quora have resulted in her being listed as a Top Writer on the site resulting in her content being shared on Forbes, Huffington Post and Apple News.

Janice has a bachelor’s degree in mass communications from Phillips University in Enid OK and a Master’s degree in journalism from the University of Memphis. Prior to joining Monsanto in 2007, she worked for Delta and Pine Land Company in Scott, Mississippi and Gibbs  Soell in White Plains, New York.
