I have worked for the University of Idaho for 18 years, ten years as a faculty member. In 2007, I was hired as the 4-H Extension Educator in Canyon County, one of the largest 4-H programs in Idaho.  My strengths in this position include ability to effectively communicate, organize programs, and begin new programs.

In 2015, I was hired as a Regional Youth Development Educator for the Extension Southern District with 50% state responsibility and 50% district responsibility. In this position I have connected with community organizations such as the Idaho Afterschool Network, Idaho Youth Ranch and have worked with a multi-state research project on youth retention in 4-H programs. I have led a team to develop a new staff orientation series of 18 modules, work as a team member to write activities for a National 4-H/NASA curriculum and support county 4-H programs as needed.
