Kaci was born and raised in Michigan, where she loved the outdoors. After being inspired by some wonderful teachers, she started hunting bugs and studied entomology at Michigan State University. Entomology led to pest management, which led to pesticide science. After earning her master’s degree, she joined the National Pesticide Information Center (NPIC) as a pesticide specialist. Kaci enjoys working directly with the public, responding to real-life questions about the risks and benefits of different pest management strategies.
Kaci worked with the Oregon Department of Agriculture as a Pesticide Investigator, monitoring compliance and responding to complaints. Since 2006, Kaci has been coordinating operations at NPIC, collaboratively writing publications, web content, podcasts, and other outreach materials that speak to the real issues people report to the Center.
Kaci is a Senior Faculty Research Assistant at Oregon State University in the Department for Environmental & Molecular Toxicology. She is the Coordinator for the National Pesticide Information Center, which is open Monday – Friday at 1-800-858-7378. The website is available in English and Spanish at http://npic.orst.edu.
