Until the state finalizes its changes to the UWEX budget, and subsequently to the levels of staffing, it is unknown whether or not there will be a replacement for Christy. In the interim we have two very qualified individuals who will work with us as advisors: Ag Educator Nick Baker, and Family Living Educator and co-department head Angie Flickinger.
Her education includes being a Registered Dietitian, having a Masters in Public Health and holding her personal training certificate. Prior to joining Extension, Angie held a position with the NC WIC Program. On a personal note she enjoys food, family, faith, fitness and all things furry.
Nick grew up on a dairy and crop farm outside of Darien, Wisconsin before obtaining a Bachelor's degree in Agriculture Education and a Masters in Adult Education with an Agriculture Emphasis.
He currently resides in Evansville with his wife and daughter. When not working he enjoys spending time with his family, hunting, fishing, gardening and helping on his family farm. He assists producers throughout Rock County, working to strengthen the research completed at the county farm, is active with agriculture producer groups and assists with youth agriculture organizations and trainings.
