from the U.C. APIARIES University of California Sept/Oct 2014  "Hello" from Elina" 

Hello California!
Dear California beekeepers,

I am truly thrilled to be the new Assistant Extension Specialist in Apiculture here at UC Davis and I can’t wait for us to get better acquainted. I know, I know, I have some big shoes to fill, but I’m thinking I have the next 38 years to do so. My official start date was September 1, 2014 so as you can imagine I barely had the time to learn how to get from my lab at Briggs Hall to my office at the Harry H. Laidlaw Jr. Research Facility. Despite the short time I’ve been here, I’ve had the pleasure of already meeting some of CA beekeepers. But until I get to meet you all, I will share a few words about myself, starting at the very beginning.
