I am a California native who grew up on a family owned-and-operated ranch in the foothills near Fresno. After high school, I moved to Oklahoma to major in agricultural communications at Oklahoma State University. I was fortunate to work as an intern with the county office while pursuing my undergraduate degree and upon graduation in 2019, I was hired as a program assistant. My major responsibilities include marketing county Extension events, social media postings, developing and maintaining our office website and assisting our educators. I assist with all program areas but agriculture and 4-H tend to the ones on which I spend most of my time – simply because our office is extremely active in both.
