Meet your 4-H Agents!

 

Kristen Poppell

Hello everyone!
My name is Kristen Poppell and I am your 4-H Agent here in Nassau County. I am a two-time graduate from the University of Florida (Go Gators!), where I majored in Forest Resources and Conservation. During my time at UF, I volunteered with many 4-H events. I love working with the great youth and volunteers of Nassau County 4-H. My goal is to empower the youth in our community and help make the best better!
You can contact me about anything related to 4-H, but my major focus areas include:

  • STEM Education (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics)
  • Environmental Science
  • Leadership Development (including county and district councils)
  • Healthy Eating School Enrichment Programs
  • Social Media & Communication (i.e. Friday Flyers)

Kelsey Irvine

Hello, I’m Kelsey Irvine your new 4-H Extension Agent! I live in the Yulee area and had my first day in the office January 3rd. I recently received my Master’s degree from the University of Florida with a Major in Animal Science (Equine Reproduction specialty) and a Minor in Wildlife Ecology and Conservation. I’m very passionate about wild horse management and overall animal welfare.
Before working as your new agent I have served as a veterinary technician for over 5 years working in general practice, wildlife medicine, emergency medicine, and even field anesthesia. I will also be your representative for livestock during weather emergencies. As your new agent my biggest goals are to inspire more active membership and more varied programs. If your child wants to learn about it, I will find a way so they can!

You are welcome to reach me by email (kelseymirvine@ufl.edu) or via my work cell (905-570- 5390). I also have an open door policy, so please feel free to stop by if I’m in the office and meet me! I look forward to working with every one of our amazing
Nassau 4-H members and volunteers.
