I am excited to be a part of the Alachua County 4-H team as the 4-H Program Coordinator! As a member of 4-H in Marion County, I participated in the swine and dog projects and went on to show at the Florida State Fair Dog Show for multiple years. Once I completed my Bachelor's Degree in Family, Youth, & Community Science (FYCS), I accepted a position as the 4-H Extension Agent in Mathews, Virginia and completed the FYCS Master's program. After four years in Virginia, my husband had the chance to begin his 4-H career as the agent in Suwannee County, so we decided to move back to my roots in Florida for exciting opportunities for both of us. We are both excited for our son to be able to join 4-H in the future! Here in Alachua County, I work on our school-based programming, dog training, social media and marketing our programs, leadership trainings, and any other 4-H programs where I'm needed.
