“I teach nutrition to youth, teens, and adults in the Peoria area. I teach my clients  to eat and cook healthy, work with a budget, and exercise. My goal is to help them be engaging, to be creative, and have fun with their health, so they have a healthy head, heart, and hands.”

Angela began her career with University of Illinois Extension in 2016. Her work is focused on EFNEP programs in Peoria County. Many of her programs benefit from Angela’s English and Spanish speaking skills.
