Meet Vicki Tybo, our new 4-H Youth Development Program coordinator!
Vicki has already started recruiting new 4-H volunteer leaders and expanding the program.
She has lived in Elko County for two years. For the past year and a half, she's worked for Intertribal Council of Nevada as a domestic violence advocate. She’s trained dogs for twenty years, and has worked as a veterinarian technician and at an animal shelter.
Vicki’s agriculture and ranching roots run deep. She grew up on a ranch, and she and her husband own a small cattle ranch in Butte Valley, Nevada.
Vicki appreciates the value of 4-H. She participated in the program as a youth, and she was a volunteer leader when her three daughters were 4-H'ers.
Welcome to the team, Vicki!
