Phone: 785-232-0062 ext. 114
Area(s) of Specialization: Teach youth about nutrition and physical activity.
I've been with Extension for more than 20 years and provide research-based education in Shawnee County schools throughout 4-H. Teachers select from the many Enrichment program lessons, or check out materials and/or equipment from our resource bank. My lessons cover food and nutrition, and education related to heart health so students learn to take care of their growing bodies.
I enjoy working with students and use many visual props and games to keep learning fun. It's delightful to have students introduce me to their parents when I run into them at the grocery store. I'm called the healthy food lady!
