Biographical Statement
The need for effective and accurate education in the areas of Nutrition and Health has become vital in helping communities with limited resources achieve successful lives. Across the life span, we have seen that progress increases, as people are able to function with healthy minds and bodies. My goal, since entering this field of study, has been to successfully communicate the concepts and principles of Nutrition and Health to those with whom I interact. In my work with Cooperative Extension, it is my objective to help staff effectively communicate Nutrition and Health information utilizing various methods that meet the learners’ needs.
