 Time with ANR 24 years
 Typical Day I am a Nutrition educator in Santa Clara County. I teach nutrition lessons from preschoolers to adults. The lessons are in one time workshop or series formats I also attend collaborative meetings with partners in Head Start, After school, and Sunnyvale partners to name a few.

 Most Memorable Moment Many of our staff retreats and staff bonding moments.

 What I love Most About Working for ANR The variety of work experiences. Not only in teaching but learning about and working with other areas in ANR.

 My Story I was a substitute teacher in an elementary and had just had a baby when Estella West ask if I wanted to go to work part time on a nutrition study. It involved collecting food recalls and urine. We had to collect the urine from the participants in a large jug and we had to keep it on ice in a cooler.

Here's to another 100 years of science and service!
