Sonia C. Rodriguez
Nutrition Educator, UCCE Butte County / Cluster

My Story:

My commitment to empower families in our rural communities attracted me to the EFNEP position. I graduated from Chico State with a degree in Computer Science. I worked as a bilingual teacher assistant to help pay for college. I worked in the fields in the summer. My first job after graduation was working with low-income families in the social service area. After working in affordable housing programs in eight rural counties in Northern California for 17 years, I was offered a job in Sacramento working with Fannie Mae in the loan modification department. After a year of driving to Sacramento every day, I decided to seek a job in Butte County, where I lived. I was fortunate to find a job with UC ANR in EFNEP. Working here compliments my commitment in helping people. Delivering EFNEP empowers low-income families live healthier and happier lives. It is important work!
