Meet Jeanne Rehwaldt
As the Program Manager for Food $ense, I have developed partnerships with local community groups, government agencies, and school districts to bring nutrition education into classrooms and throughout Mason County. I am now focusing on making changes in the places where people live, work, play, and learn that help people to make the healthy choice the easy choice.
At Washington State University I took several food science classes which opened up a whole new world to me. Science had always seemed to be about dissecting frogs or lab experiments up to that point. Looking back, I had several great role models in my family who grew their own food, preserved much of that garden bounty for the winter and baked from scratch. Teaching healthy habits that last a lifetime is a joy and very rewarding to me.
I love to garden and being outdoors. Our backyard is a private sanctuary for my family and I to relax in the evenings or on weekends. Our firepit is a wonderful place to catch up on events of the week and dream of things to come while listening to the pop and crack of the wood and enjoying the smell of the campfire smoke. It brings back memories of camping with my family while growing up in Washington.
