Hello! My name is Vicki Starks. I am very excited about the New Year, 2018, as I join the Fayette County Food and Fitness Initiative team as the Early Childhood Educational Associate for Fayette County.
I look forward to meeting the children, parents and caregivers, teachers and staff, and daycare providers. I will be sharing the bounties of Fayette county as I explore locally sourced foods with children in the early learning setting. I am excited to share the experience of the delicious and healthy foods available to us locally!
I was born and raised in West Union, Iowa. After moving away for college, with a few additional moves after that, I knew West Union was where I wanted to raise my family. When our daughter was one year old my husband and I returned to the area and decided to make West Union our permanent home. I feel that has been the best decision of our lives!
My husband, children, and I have enjoyed so many of the wonderful things Northeast Iowa has to offer. Camping, hiking, fishing, exploring nature, campfires, photography, family and friends, and taking the scenic route as we travel are some of the many things we enjoy.
I look forward to all of the great things to come in 2018 including spending quality time with our grandchildren and gaining a daughter in law when our son is married in October.
