We are pleased to introduce Kelly Streit (pronounced "street"), MS, RD as the newest addition to the Clackamas County Extension Service faculty. The Family and Community Health (FCH) program is growing in Clackamas County in response to local needs assessment input. This position is partially supported with District dollars. Please join us in welcoming Kelly to our Extension team!

Kelly, a native Oregonian and a Tualatin small farmer, brings a strong nutrition and food science background to our program as well as educational outreach experience and service that reaches across the state and into most every Oregon community. Now an FCH Instructor in Clackamas County, Kelly will focus on program outcomes related to "Healthy Eating and Activity" and "Reducing Food-borne Illness." She has the added responsibility of managing faculty for the Oregon Food and Nutrition Program (OFNP) and will coordinate the Family and Community Education and Family Food Educator volunteer programs.

In January, Sigrid Clark joined the Clackamas County Extension Office serving as the office receptionist and secretary to the Family Community Health and OFNP programs.

Sigrid and her husband, Rob, live on five acres in between Springwater and Dodge near Estacada. She has a strong clerical background and brings a multitude of skills and talents to the position. We are pleased to have her as part of our local Extension team.

What‘s her favorite part of her new position? She can‘t decide if it‘s fellow staff, the citizen assistance, or the subject matter of gardens and foods.
