About Me

I have a special place in my heart for the people of Wagoner County because this is my home and where I grew up. My career in Extension started in 1992 as a program assistant and one of the first projects I worked on was through an Initiative for the Future of Rural Oklahoma grant. I needed to identify an issue my community was facing, and I chose the lack of medical care. Our county received one of the IFRO grants and the first seven years of my career were spent helping establish a federally-qualified medical center. We now have four centers throughout Wagoner County that provide our citizens with affordable health care. In addition, I’ve worked to increase retail and manufacturing, as well as job awareness in the county. Part of my job allows me to provide educational information to the citizens of Wagoner County and to help develop the communities to grow and progress with economic opportunities. I earned both my bachelor’s and master’s degrees in agricultural education from Oklahoma State University.
