My Role

As a child, I was raised on a farm with cattle and horses and learned about the importance of family. My calling to teach started when I was young, but I didn’t embark upon it until my mid-30s. I was a non-traditional student with the tenacity to acquire a degree that would allow me to help families learn to be healthy in all ways. With the experience of raising my own young family at that time, I embarked upon a career with OSU Extension. I gained valuable direction from an aunt who was a Family and Consumer Sciences Educator. That, along with the life skills I gained from being involved in the 4-H program, enabled me to launch my awesome career.
