Mary Ann has been an invaluable resource and phenomenal colleague to work with on efforts to increase health education and reduce health-related disparities. Her knowledge and dedication to the communities that she serves is fantastic. She is an excellent example of how the Family Living Program contributes to strengthening communities. Due to her fine example, we have continued to work with Family Living educators on a project that expands our effort across the state of Wisconsin. Having the recent opportunity to meet and work with these Extension educators, I was continually impressed and inspired by their work, drive, commitment, and embodiment of the Wisconsin Idea. I consider myself fortunate to work with them and look forward to continuing to work in partnership and help support their local efforts.
