Areas of Expertise
Health and nutrition are important, and instilling healthy habits early helps youth get off on the right foot. After earning my associate degree in art from Oklahoma City Community College, I found a passion for teaching the youth. Children love to eat treats and snacks. I want to teach children they can still enjoy these things, but show them how to make them healthier and with less sugar, but still tasty. In addition to teaching kids about nutrition, I enjoy emphasizing the importance of exercise as part of everyday life. Helping youth live a healthy lifestyle is a key component of my role as an Extension program specialist.
