Biography

The Statewide 4-H Director provides visionary leadership to the implementation and evaluation of the University of California 4-H Youth Development Program and is responsible for creating and implementing strategies and programs to support the growth and development of 4-H, volunteers, and staff. The Director connects research and extension efforts to the latest research on positive youth development and collaborates with UC ANR Strategic Initiatives, Program Teams, Workgroups, campus specialists, advisors, staff and county Cooperative Extension offices in fostering research and program delivery across the state of California. The Director provides leadership and oversight to the 4-H Advisory Committees, 4-H focus areas (4-H Science, Technology, Engineering & Mathematics, 4-H Healthy Living, and 4-H Citizenship) and 4-H Military Partnership Program. The Director develops and coordinates revenue generating opportunities in support of 4-H, and develops, interprets, and implements UC policies related to 4-H. Primary clientele are 4-H staff, academics, county directors, and 4-H adult volunteers who, in turn, deliver programs to meet the needs of young people and families in the community. 

I graduated from the University of Wisconsin at Stevens Point with a BS degree in Elementary Education with an emphasis in Outdoor Education in 1987, and obtained my MS degree in Outdoor Education in 1991 from Northern Illinois University.
