Areas of Expertise
Health and Hunger
I am excited and blessed to be a part of the OSU Extension family. My mother, both grandmothers, both great-grandmothers and an aunt were very active in Extension (home Extension clubs) and my father was a vocational agriculture teacher after his graduation from Oklahoma State University. Some of my fondest memories are of my years as a 4-H member and the various activities I participated in. I loved assisting my grandparents on their farms and attending the “club” meetings with my grandmothers.
It was the inspiration of an early childhood family friend in another state, who retired as a home economist and a friend who recently retired as an Extension educator, for their guidance in helping lead me to a career in Extension, after 27 years in the Title III Older Americans Acts programs.
I hold a bachelor of science degree from the Oklahoma State University College of Human and Environmental Sciences.
