I’m Dana Hunter and I’m honored and humbled to serve amongst you this year. I entered BYU in 1984 as a Home Economics Education major and never turned back. I taught for one year in Alpine District and I worked in recipe testing and development in San Francisco. I returned to BYU in 2000 to teach foods part time. I have transitioned to a full-time position where I teach foods and oversee the food labs and curriculum at BYU. I also help supervise student teachers and am energized each time I see our educators at work in the public schools.
I love our field because, as the AAFCS website says, we are “focused on the science and art of living and working well in our complex world.”
The things that happen in and around the home, amongst family members, can make all the difference in a person’s life and we are fortunate to be in a field that is dedicated to making lives better where living begins - in the home. From food preparation and nutrition, to clothing design and construction, to interior design, to family finances and human relations, we are in a key position to make a huge impact on our society - one person at a time.
I hope we can support each other, share successes, and grow as a community of Family and Consumer Sciences professionals. Whether we are working in public or private education, improving our skills within our homes, or working in extension or business, we all have knowledge and passion we can share and things we can learn from each other. I look forward to continuing to connect with and learn from you.
