WELCOME JOY LILE, the new 4-H Regional Specialist for Clallam, Jefferson, and Kitsap Counties.

My research interests include mentor-youth relationships, low-income youth, and participatory research and evaluation methods. I am in the process of finishing my PhD in Human Development and Family Studies from Oregon State University. My previous experiences with 4-H include working on a state-wide youth garden program in Oregon, and helping evaluate Food Smart Families, a national Youth Advocates for Health (YA4-H!) program. When I’m not working, I enjoy hiking with my partner Mat, gardening, cooking healthy food, and arts and crafts like photography and jewelry making. I’m excited to be part of the WSU team!
