Anita Wilkinson, Communications Program Coordinator

“Through words and images, I share the stories of our volunteers, members, staff,  partnerships, and programs. The stories I “tell” are created with the goal of inviting everyone to get involved, learn something new, and understand the impact Extension programs make in the lives and communities in our four counties.”

Anita has been the Communications Program Coordinator for the Fulton-Mason-Peoria-Tazewell Unit since 2014. She began her Illinois Extension career in 1998.
