In March, after 17 years with WSU Extension and Food $ense, I accepted a position as Executive Director of a local non-profit working to build a Culture of Health in Mason County. After completing a draft of the FY2017 SNAP Ed grant plan, the leadership was turned over to Christine to complete. She began working with the program last summer as a nutrition educator and quickly learned the dynamics of the program and community it serves. With the assistance of the local and state staff and Department of Health (Implementing Agency for the grant) Christine jumped in and navigated a steep learning curve to complete the project summary, budget, and plan by the short deadline in April. Her professional attitude and calm exterior helped to ease this transition. I commend her for completing this plan and determining program needs and capacity using a shared leadership model to guide the local program outputs for the future. Well done!
