WSU Extension 4-H Youth Development Program

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

What do you enjoy most about working in 4-H?
I’m often impressed by the amazing volunteers I work with.  We each have our job to do but, together, we all seem to learn a bit more and have a whole lot of fun in the process.

How have you seen 4-H help youth as they develop and grow?
I think the greatest attribute I see youth gain from participation in 4-H is confidence.  Whether it is braving the dark nights at their first 4-H camp, standing in front of a crowd giving a demonstration, testifying before a mock committee on a bill at the Know Your Government conference, or coordinating a summer youth program as a senior project  -- youth walk away with incredible confidence to tackle the next challenge in life.

What else would be good to know?
4-H is part of my job for WSU Extension.  I am the Human Development Educator for the Lincoln-Adams County area and County Director for Lincoln County.  I work with three part-time educators to deliver nutrition education in eight school districts and I work with three libraries to put on summer reading programs in three communities.  I partner with the Economic Development Council, local health department, and other community organizations whenever possible.  On the side, I volunteer my time and serve on a Child Passenger Safety Team to educate parents on the proper use and installation of child safety seats.
