Meet Our Team (post 2 of 3)

Our first 'meet the team' post was a big hit, or maybe it was just Ernie's Instagram account :)

Read on to learn more about the team members in Extension Technology. Introducing .... Patrice, Terri, and Libby!

Patrice Johnson, business analyst / registration What do you like best about Extension and/or Ext Tech? The people I work with! And the programs!
What’s a favorite project you’ve worked on?  Getting registration up and running back in the day. It was a brand new project and we started from scratch. I like feeling that I contributed to an important and successful service.
If you had to eat one thing for every meal going forward, what would you eat?  Pizza or tacos (as long as I could vary the ingredients on/in them). Or popovers filled with creme fraiche, cured salmon, and caviar.

What do you like to do outside work? Write, cook, and teach (I cook and teach to support my writing habit.). I also have a wicked TV viewing habit and book collection.
What’s something most…

Extension Technology was proud to support our Extension programming at the State Fair with hands-on assistance, as well as supplying over 100 pieces of equipment, ranging from laptops to netbooks to printers. We are quick to lend a helping hand to ANY team but especially if they are located in the midst of corndogs and butterheads. Or, as I like to think of it, HEAVEN.

From Master Gardeners accessing Extension info on Google Chromebooks to 4-H Livestreaming their 3 most popular events, technology opportunities abound at the State Fair. We had a blast seeing it, talking about it, and being a part of some of it! Here's a little video from the field so you can be a part of it too!
