WSU Extension 4-H Youth Development Program

 How long have you been at the county office?
1.5 years.

Where did you grow up?

Favorite activities/interests:
Couponing, camping, hunting, fishing, roller skating.

What was our 4-H experience?
My projects included photography, sewing, horses, leadership, ambassador, pigs, mentoring, horse camp, skateboarding, snowboarding, crafts, ducks, and rabbits. 

How did your time in 4-H help you over the years?
It helped me know who I am.  I would never have been able to talk to people or in front of them.  I didn't like to do demonstrations but, after all these years, I can see the value of why I did it.

What do you enjoy the most about working in 4-H?
I love to go to Fair or Super Saturday and see what the youth are working on and talk to them about their projects.  The youth get so excited that I know our program is succeeding in making a difference in their lives.

How have you seen 4-H help youth as they develop and grow?
It is amazing to see the changes in the lives of the youth.

What else would be good to know?
I love 4-H and can't wait to get my license plate!  Also, I just got married!
