The goal of the Family & Consumer Sciences Program is to improve the quality of life for individuals and families. We address the challenges of critical issues affecting people's daily lives in a changing environment. Programs focus on economic, social and physical well-being of our clients. We strengthen personal and family relationships, encourage healthful choices, and identify resources to extend income.   

Greetings to Leslie County Community.   Over the past 5 years I have been 4-H Agent for Youth Development Education with Leslie County Cooperative Extension Service.   Effective August 1, 2020 I will be transferred to Agent for Family and Consumer Sciences Education. I would like to assure you that 4-H Youth will continue to be served. 

I truly appreciate all of your support for Extension and look forward to continued work with everyone.  I will still be at Leslie County Extension serving community only in a different role.  Please feel free to contact me as usual at (606) 672-2154, messenger or
