I am very proud to be on the Green Lake County Wellness Coalition with our UW-Extension Family Living Agent Katie Gellings. As the past chair of the Nutrition Action Group, part of my role was to track and report community programming that impacts our Community Health Improvement Plan. The varied programs provided by Katie have made a significant impact on our community. She has varied programming to meet community need, and covered our residents across the life span. From nutrition, physical activity, fiscal management and basic life skills, Katie covers them all. Having been with Green Lake County for 23 years, I have never worked with a more effective Family Living Agent.
