Marisol Andrade
Nutrition Educator, UCCE Butte County / Cluster

My Story:

As is more common nowadays, I was unable to find employment right after receiving my bachelor’s degree in Family and Consumer Science from CSU Sacramento, so I decided to move back to my parent’s home in Watsonville.  Soon after moving to Watsonville, I found employment with the Women, Infant, and Children (WIC) program in Hollister, California, where I worked as a WIC Nutritional Assistant (WNA). It was there that I first worked with low-income families who required the assistance of this program for mere survival. I worked with a population that was low income, underserved and undereducated. Working with this population, I realized how important my work was and I began to look at other areas where I could make a difference. On September 25, 2010, I married and moved to Chico. Knowing I wanted to make a difference with low-income communities, I searched for employment in the area of nutrition, but especially providing nutritional education. I was fortunate to find UC ANR. Now I am part of the difference.
