Julia Goar has been the Missoula County Expanded Food and Nutrition Education (EFNEP) nutrition educator for over a year. She teaches basic nutrition classes to limited resource families. In the coming year she plans to partner with more agencies and recruit and graduate more adult participants.

Goar’s favorite part of working for Extension is knowing the program makes a difference. Her classes empower families by adding skills that improve lives. She says, “when I hear people discuss what they’ve learned and how they are going to apply it, they are joyful and excited; that’s when I truly enjoy my job.”

Goar is from the Seattle area. She loves having her supportive family visit on a regular basis and also has an amazing Montana family that includes loved ones, friends and coworkers. In her free time, she enjoys hiking, fishing, skiing and floating the Clark Fork.
