What do you love about 4-H?
I love how 4-H inspires confidence through hands-on learning. I also love how much variety and flexibility there is in the 4-H experience - the possibilities are endless!
What do you love about Marion County? I grew up in Marion County, so it feels like home! I love all the unique neighborhoods and the friendliness of the people. There is so much to see and do.
How do you spend your time outside of work? I enjoy hanging out with my two cats, cooking foods from around the world, swing dancing, knitting, and other arts and crafts.
If you have some extra time over the holidays, don't forget to re-enroll in 4-H! Any youth or adult volunteer who re-enrolls between now (December 14th) and January 1st will be entered to win a bag of 4-H goodies!
