Heather Janney


Heather Janney is the UF/IFAS Extension Columbia County Extension Director/ 4-H Extension Agent II. After obtaining her BS in Psychology and BA in Sociology, Heather Janney started her career in Extension in Early County, Georgia as a Program Specialist. She worked with a grant funded program providing education through home visitation of borderline child abuse cases. She developed a strong love of providing education to individuals as a way of “saving” them from other negative outcomes. Heather came to UF/IFAS Extension as the Baker/Bradford Multi-County Family and Consumer Sciences (FCS) Agent. She spent 6 months working to make strong connections in these counties to provide programming but when Hamilton County created a 4-H /FCS Agent position, she could not resist taking the position allowing her to work with youth. Despite Heather’s appointment being 60% 4-H and 40% FCS, after much work and determination, she was successful in providing 100% of both program areas to clientele in Hamilton County. Heather accepted the position of County Extension Director/4-H Agent in October 2018 and is working to develop a fully functioning county extension office and 4-H program.
