Mandy Marney joined the University of Wyoming this week as new associate director of the university's Extension Service.

A former district director for research and extension at Kansas State University, Marney is reportedly known for her efforts to break down work silos and foster teamwork.

Kelly Crane, who's the UW Extension director, said Marney comes to Wyoming with a wealth of experience working with rural communities and county governments to ensure extension remains relevant and responsive to their needs. Marney says extension is poised to tackle complex social issues.

Marney earned all three of her degrees from the University of Missouri-Columbia. She holds a bachelor's degree in agricultural journalism, a master's in environment and behavior, architectural studies, and a Ph.D. in human environmental sciences.

UW Extension has offices in every Wyoming county and the Wind River Indian Reservation.
