Join Us in Welcoming Amber Kassay!

Hello, my name is Amber Kassay, and I’ve recently taken on the 4-H Youth Development Educator role in Clermont County. I grew up on a small dairy operation in Northeast Ohio and was a 13-year 4-H member in Trumbull County. While in 4-H, I exhibited Guernsey cattle and a horse project and attended 4-H Camp Whitewood almost every summer. Although I loved all aspects of my 4-H career, I was especially drawn to the dairy industry and have been involved with Guernsey’s at the county, state, and national levels. Growing up, I was fortunate enough to attend many National Guernsey Conventions, where I broadened my connections to the breed I love.

Through 4-H, I developed a passion for agriculture, ultimately leading to pursuing a bachelor’s degree in agricultural communications at The Ohio State University. During that time, I had the excellent opportunity to become an intern at the Mahoning County Extension Office over the duration of two summers, where my desire for youth development and community involvement flourished. I aided in all aspects of the office and cultivated my understanding of Extension’s impact in its area. For that experience, I will forever be grateful.

Since then, I’ve continued to grow my knowledge in Extension Education and look forward to positively impacting Clermont County. Although I’ve just started, I can already tell we have a wonderful group here and have a common desire to better our program year-to-year. I’m excited to bring my expertise to Clermont County and plan on being an effective role model in the community. I plan on soaking in a lot of knowledge in the upcoming months to understand the county dynamic better and collaborating with other Educators to create a course of action that will make Clermont County thrive!

I look forward to meeting and chatting with you all, as I’m excited to take on this new adventure.
