Southeast Technical Institute
Horticulture Instructor
Southeast Technical Institute
Ginger joined Southeast Tech in the summer of 2015, with more than a decade of experience in the horticulture field. After earning her A.S. degree in Horticulture from Northeast Community College in Norfolk, NE, she continued her education earning a B.S. degree in Horticulture Production from South Dakota State University. This allowed her to focus on specific areas like; fruits, vegetable, ornamental and turf plants. She is currently in the process of earning her M.S. degree from South Dakota State University in Plant Science with an emphasis in Entomology. Her graduate work at SDSU focused on insect pests and pest management strategies, primary on insect biological control of pest populations in agriculture crops.

Ginger has worked in a variety of horticulture jobs; floral shops, greenhouses, garden centers, public gardens, fruit and vegetable production and seed testing. She feels the most fulfilling part of any jobs is being able to use her education and experience to help someone with their horticulture needs.
