Position: 4-H Youth Development, Wasco County, OSU Extension Service
Hometown: The Dalles
# of years at OSU: 9
Best part of your job: Everything! I love the variety this job affords me. Though there are many events and activities we do yearly (like camps and fair), they are never the same because different challenges and benefits arise each year. I enjoy working with people of all ages from children to senior citizens. People are the spice of life!
Something someone might be surprised to know about you: I was destined to be 4-H Faculty. My life experiences have prepared me for this position by shaping me into a well-rounded person (which, I understand, is better than a well-squared person). My childhood was spent participating and living the 4-H program (9 year 4-H member and daughter, niece and grand-niece of Extension Agents). Question for those who know me – What is my legal name and/or my given name? I don’t “go” by either of them.
Favorite book/movie/album: I love books and would be hard pressed to share a favorite. I enjoy a good story based on history, on psychology, on disasters… I am not a good movie watcher – I’d rather read the book. With that said my favorite movie is Fiddler on the Roof. I like ‘oldies’ songs that have a moral to the story. Harry Chapin was one of my favorite artists.
