Areas of Expertise
Before working with Le Flore Extension office, I was a family and consumer sciences high school teacher for 31 years. I enjoy working with elementary children and seeing them soak up all the knowledge like little sponges. The awareness gained in nutrition information warms my heart and I truly believe teaching is my calling.
My work as a nutrition education assistant perfectly combines with my educational background. I received my bachelor’s degree in home economics education from Oklahoma State University and my master’s degree in library media from East Central. In my role, some programs I teach are 30 minute, seven to eight week nutrition courses in schools. I also oversee adult classes regarding nutrition and handle summer programs for children specializing in food experiences.
