Information and Communications Manager, Regulatory Policy and Scientific Affairs, Monsanto Company

I graduated from the University of Dayton (GO FLYERS!!!) with a BS in Pre-Medicine. I diverted from Medical School to begin a career in the sciences working in pharmaceuticals and later for a Contract Research Organization (CRO) in Houston Texas. Originally from St. Louis, I moved home to pursue a career opportunity with Monsanto. I have always wanted to play a role in helping others, and the opportunities are endless with what I get to do in my career with this company! I also enjoy volunteering to bring science to the classrooms in the St. Louis area, walking my Basset Hound Annie and attending far too many STL Cardinals baseball games.

Monsanto is a company that develops solutions to help growers be more sustainable and productive. We use plant breeding and biotechnology to create seeds that grow into stronger, more resilient crops requiring fewer resources. Biotechnology is the process used to create GMOs seeds, such as corn, soy, cotton and canola, among others. Although crop biotechnology is... Read More

Many questions on Roundup® have been answered in great detail on this site already, and if you would like to explore these in more detail, I have included additional links at the end of this response.  Similarly, I invite you to the new Monsanto Company website dedicated to Roundup® and glyphosate.   Glyphosate specifically inhibits an enzyme, EPSPS (most growing plants produce this protein) that is essential to plant growth; this enzyme is not found in humans or animals....
