About the Presenter
Ms. Brown serves as Program Specialist – IPM in the Austin metroplex encompassing Travis County and surrounding counties. Austin is the 4th largest city in Texas and the 13th largest in the nation. From 2000-2006 it was the 3rd fastest-growing U.S. city. The climate is subtropical with hot, humid summers and mild winters. The community is racially mixed, with white and Hispanic as the predominant races. The most important industries are government, computer systems and information technology, colleges and universities, and business headquarters. The music industry and blue-collar industries are also important occupations. The range of political positions among Austinites spans from the very liberal to the very conservative. IPM concepts, however, bridge the political, ethnic, and cultural gaps. They offer common sense solutions to pest problems that provide economic, environmental, human health, and quality of life benefits to people, irrespective of their employment, ethnicity, or political persuasion
