Community Based Instructor III


Originally from West Michigan, I have made Nevada my home for  20 years now. Working in the EFNEP Youth program at the Extension where we teach middle school students about nutrition and health. In my spare time I love to walk, dance, follow sports and spend quality time with my grand girls and friendly felines.



Expanded Food and Nutrition Education Program (EFNEP)

Many Nevadans suffer from heart problems, are obese or have diabetes. In Nevada, the Expanded Food and Nutrition Education Program is administered by University of Nevada, Reno to engage adults and youth to boost nutrition through building basic skills. Participants learn how to read food labels, save money on groceries, plan meals, safely handle food, make healthy food choices, and be more active.
