Job Description

As the UGA SNAP-Ed Associate Coordinator, my primary responsibility is managing and supporting the direct education arm of UGA SNAP-Ed. The direct education piece of UGA SNAP-Ed includes 3 unique curricula: Food Talk, Food Talk: Farmers Market, and Food Talk: Better U. These curricula are delivered to low-income Georgians through UGA Extension SNAP-Ed Program Assistants. I have the pleasure of working closely with Program Assistants, SNAP-Ed Educators, and FACS Extension Agents in our 7 implementing counties (Bartow, Clarke, Clayton, Coffee, DeKalb, Fulton, and Gilmer) as well as the 4 FACS Program Development Coordinators across the state.

About Me

I am an experienced public health professional with a strong interest in promoting positive health behaviors through policy, systems, and environmental changes. With a Bachelor of Science in Dietetics and a Master of Public Health in Health Promotion & Education, my primary interest is healthy eating and active living initiatives to prevent and mitigate chronic diseases. 

Currently, I am the Associate Coordinator with the University of Georgia’s SNAP-Ed project. Before stepping into this position, I served as a SNAP-Ed Research Professional II where I was able to impact the development of UGA SNAP-Ed programming by proposing more efficient systems and protocols that improved data quality and strategic planning efforts.

I am always interested in hearing from folks who share the desire to empower others and who advocate for the well-being of our communities, nation, and world. In whatever way that might be, I hope that we can connect and unite our efforts to truly improve and protect public health.
