What do you enjoy about WIC?

I really enjoy working with moms and their families.  This is a receptive time for families to make a healthy start in life and continue to adopt healthy lifestyles for long term health.  I like the fact that I am able to get to know the families in WIC and understand their difficulties in reaching certain goals and offer them support each time I see them.

What do you do enjoy doing in your free time? 

 Walking, reading and cooking

What is one thing you want the community to know about nutrition?

  It is important to eat healthy for so many reasons!
