Jenny_RudolphName: Jenny Ahlers Rudolph

Position: Instructor, Extension Family & Community Health, Columbia County Extension Service Office

Hometown: Southlake, Texas

# of years at OSU: Just celebrated my 10th year with OSU Extension!   I started in February of 2003 as an AmeriCorps Member doing health and safety outreach to migrant farmworkers out of the Washington County Extension Service office.

Best part of your job: I really love that I get to learn new things every day in my job.  I’ve done everything from teaching Spanish-speaking farmworkers how to use a backpack pesticide applicator, to teaching folks how to safely can their own salsa.  I’ve also had some wonderful mentors in Extension that have given me the skills and knowledge I needed to help me grow as a professional.

Something someone might be surprised to know about you: I once leapt from a 40 foot high waterfall in the Amazon rainforest.  The resulting wedgie was truly epic.  What can I say – people do stupid things when they’re 20!

Favorite book/movie/album:

Books: Anything written by or about Jane Austen.

Movies: Sense and Sensibility, Emma, Pride and Prejudice, and (of course) Clueless.

I also love blues and jazz music.
