Hi, I’m Iris Smithey and I am a Community Health Worker with Samuel U. Rodgers Health Center. You can find me working with families at the North Oak and Clay County satellite offices. I am passionate about cultivating the community by planting the seeds of resources and watching families blossom and flourish. I have been involved in Scouting activities my whole life, and I am now passing that enthusiasm to my children. I love camping, crafting, climbing, and all animals (I miss my pet snake and hedgehog). You can contact me via email at firstname.lastname@example.org or on my phone for calls or texts at (913) 701-7339.
