Areas of Expertise
OSU Extension is a great working environment and I hold my co-workers in high regards. My job allows me to engage with youth and speak about a program that really benefits everyone. I have always told myself that if I can just reach one person, my purpose has been fulfilled. Each time I have the opportunity to go into a school system, I try to present information in a way that everyone can understand. My goal is to not talk at them, but instead have a conversation with them.
Speaking at different schools and traveling to multiple classrooms is just a typical day in my job. Topics I speak on include delicious decisions and healthy body image to name a few. More specifically, I talk about the purpose of advertising and different forms of techniques companies might use. I pass out handouts and labels for students to learn more about food choices and that always seems to be impactful.
I received my bachelor’s degree in business administration from Southeastern Oklahoma State University. Everything I have learned in school has prepared me to do my job to the best of my ability.
