Floyd County Extension Welcomes New
Family & Consumer Science Agent
Hello everyone! My name is Andrea Johnson, I
am the former Family & Consumer Science
Agent from Magoffin County. I will be
transferring to Floyd County as the Family &
Consumer Sciences Agent on August 29, 2016. I
am a Floyd Countian, born and raised. I attended
Allen Elementary as a child and graduated from
Prestonsburg High School in 2008. From there, I
attended Big Sandy Community & Technical
College and transferred to the University of
Kentucky to pursue a Bachelor's in Science
degree in Dietetics. During my time at UK, I was
a two-time Extension Summer Intern in Floyd
County in 2012 and 2013. I fell in love with
Extension during my first summer internship and
knew I wanted to become an Agent someday. I
graduated from the University of Kentucky in December 2013 and began my
professional career in Extension on January 1, 2013.
I currently live in Floyd County in the Prestonsburg area. I have a beautiful
family and spend all of my time outside of work with them. On the weekends,
you'll find us at Archer or Jenny Wiley Park, at family functions, or at a local
restaurant in downtown Prestonsburg. I'm excited to work in Floyd County with
you all and, to be close to my friends and family. I love my job and putting forth
my knowledge and efforts to make this community even better, healthier, and
