Meet Dr. Emily Cope.

Dr. Emily CopeEmily is the new County Extension Director for Stokes County. She is a North Carolina native, former 4-H’er, and a North Carolina State University Animal Science alum. Prior to joining Stokes County, she worked as the Animal Science Extension Specialist at North Carolina A&T State University, specializing in small ruminant programs. Emily traded our Carolina pines for Caribbean palms for a few years to accompany her husband in St. Kitts while he attended veterinary school. While in the Caribbean, Emily worked for Ross University School of Veterinary medicine as their Research Administrator. Additionally, she worked closely with the St. Kitts Department of Agriculture to help local producers reach higher finishing weights on small ruminants. Before returning to North Carolina, Emily ventured over the Blue Ridge to the Smokey Mountains where she earned her doctorate degree in ruminant nutrition and physiology from the University of Tennessee. Now, she lives in Lexington with her small animal veterinary husband (Andrew), son (Wyatt, 22 months), soon to be baby boy number 2 (due May 9), and chocolate lab. Emily has a love for family, farming, and food. She and her family enjoy spending time on the family farm where the pastures are spotted with paint quarter horses and angus cattle. Emily is very excited about joining N.C. Cooperative Extension in Stokes County and looks forward to meeting the community.
