Areas of Expertise
Becoming a Nutrition Education Assistant has blessed me and my family in many ways. I learn more by teaching and enhance my skillset by helping others, which continues to help me be the best teacher I can be. I agree to the statement, never stop learning because life never stops teaching.
From working in the nutrition field for 12 years and being a certified nursing assistant, I learned eating healthy is a positive lifestyle change. I share my knowledge with my family and also pass it along to visitors in the Choctaw County Extension office to encourage healthy living.
I enjoy working with adults or hospice students on nutrition education and programs. I am involved with elementary and youth for 35 minutes in the gym, cooking classes in the summer, and Kids in the Kitchen and Teen Cuisine high school programs. Additionally, individual home visits, helping women set weight loss goals and assisting elders lower their cholesterol are part of my role.
