Angela completed her PhD in Soil Biochemistry at Wageningen University in The Netherlands after receiving her MSc in Land Resource Science from the University of Guelph. Her PhD work led to several publications on using soil carbon quality as an indicator of soil health and disease resistance. Angela grew up on a dairy farm outside on Arnprior, Ontario.
