In her new role, Jackie will work with communities and partnering agencies in Ramsey and Dakota counties to support EFNEP’s community nutrition educator team. She will help the team connect the program’s nutrition classes with families in greatest need.

Before joining Extension, Jackie worked in both rural and urban areas of the United States. In those roles, she collaborated with community organizers and teachers to engage youth in hands-on gardening and nutrition education.

Jackie is a registered dietitian and earned a master’s degree in Public Health-Nutrition from the University of Minnesota-Twin Cities.
