My name is Lisa Fulton and I've been a home visitor for Early Head Start for 12 years. Our program services expectant moms and children up to the age of 3 1/2 years old. Nutrition is a big part of our program, which lead to my partnership with local agencies, to use the tools within our community to support health and nutrition with the families that we serve. I am Event/Program Coordinator for Berkeley's Backyard.
My name is Laura Glascock. I was born in Martinsburg and raised in Morgan County, West Virginia. My husband and I have been farming in Morgan County for over 30 years. We both come from generations of agricultural roots. I graduated from Berkeley Springs High School and immediately went into the workforce. I worked at Bechtel Corporation and learned computer skills. I graduated from James Rumsey Technical Institute with a Horticultural Certificate and began faming with my future husband purchasing our first greenhouse. We have learned from experience, trial and error, and with help from many farming family, friends and organizations. We participate with NRCS programs and were the 2011 Conservation Farmer of the Year for the State of WV. Conservation, preservation and sustainable farming practices are very important to us.
Hello! My name is Tina Badley. I am a program coordinator with Starting Points family resource center. I have a B.S in Chemical Engineering from West Virginia Institute of Technology. I taught Chemistry for 18 years with Winchester SAIL private education programs. I have worked as a substitute teacher in Morgan County for 15 years. I am the mother of nine children and the grandmother of three children. I have worked for the past three years as a program coordinator for Morgan County Starting Points. I love combining my experiences preparing healthy foods for a large family with my interest in gardening and nutrition. I have a passion for working with children.
I am the Park Activities Coordinator and Naturalist at Cacapon Resort State Park. I have been employed with the West Virginia Division of Natural Resources since 2018. My focus is providing a variety of outdoor education programs to park visitors and operating a high-quality visitor experience at the Tom Ambrose Nature Center. One of my passions that has developed over the time of employment here is monarch conservation. Attending a variety of trainings, networking with local native plant groups, writing and receiving the monarch alliance grant has been very beneficial to our pollinator programs here at the nature center.
Before this employment I worked for the national park service in many different positions and locations all over the country. My first park was Harpers Ferry National Historical Park after I graduated from Shepherd College in Shepherdstown, WV with a Recreation and Commercial Tourism degree. Over the years I have worked for Shenandoah National Park, Zion National Park, Grand Teton National Park, and Sequoia National Park. I am a WV native of Fort Ashby, in Mineral County WV.
