Job Description Margie Mansure is an Extension Agent, Registered Dietitian/Nutritionist, and Culinarian who serves Watauga and Caldwell counties. Diet culture is nothing new, but social media has made it even more prevalent. Anyone with a “fit” appearance has the tools to promote themselves as an expert, often along with a diet encouraging strict rules and even elimination of many healthy foods. Through her personal and professional journey, Margie has realized that food choices should not be complicated or stressful, as stress is hazardous to well-being. Food choices are not a moral issue. Food should provide pleasure and nourishment for the body and spirit. That’s why Margie works to: 1. Promote purchasing from local food producers for fresh, flavorful food and beverage choices and development of community. 2. Help people develop cooking skills by offering hands-on cooking classes and instructional videos. Developing any skill-set requires time and perseverance. But being able to prepare your own fresh, fabulous tasting and nourishing food to share is definitely worth the energy investment.

Margie also serves these 1 counties: Caldwell County
