Meet Your County Staff

My name is Kayla Bakewell and I work as the Family and Consumer Science Extension/4-H and Youth Development agent for Richland County. I offer research-based educational programs throughout Richland County in the areas of family and consumer sciences, health, and wellness education and 4-H/Youth Development. My programs focus on building healthy people, finances, and relationships.

I graduated from North Dakota State University with B.S. degrees in Health Education and Physical Education. Currently I am pursuing a Masters of Public Health (M.P.H) with an emphasis in Health Promotions. I have previously worked in Grand Forks County as the Family and Consumer Science Extension agent and Richland County as the Family and Consumer Science Agent-in-Training. Prior to joining extension, I worked with special needs students in the Fargo Public School systems and as a gymnastics coach for the FM Acro Team. I have a special interest in holistic health and wellness.

I have worked at Richland County Extension since 2000, beginning as a part-time secretary and now as full-time administrative assistant. I live on a farm by Dwight, ND, with my farmer husband, Robert, who thoroughly enjoys being a full-time farmer! We have three married daughters, two granddaughters and one grandson. I am loving being a grandma!!

I thoroughly enjoy my job here at the Extension Office because of the great people I work with and also the many 4-H youth, leaders, parents and volunteers and the general public we meet every day!

Hi!  My name is Ronda Gripentrog. I am the Family Nutrition Program Agent (FNP) in Richland County. FNP is SNAP-Ed for North Dakota, which offers evidence-based programming to teach participants about nutrition, physical activity, cooking skills and ways to save money when shopping for food. Classes are scheduled with a variety of audiences from preschool to older adults throughout Richland County. I started working at Richland County in July 2014. Previously, I worked in Wilkin and the surrounding counties in MN with SNAP-Ed since 2001. I graduated from North Dakota State University with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Food and Nutrition and a Child Development Minor.

I live in Wahpeton with my husband, Wayne, and we have four children. Most of my personal time is spent watching their sporting events. I also enjoy gardening, DYI projects, reading and sudoku puzzles. I love working and living in our community!

I started at Richland County Extension in January of 2012 and work as a part-time secretary. I am married to Rick and have three children, a daughter-in-law and our first grandchild on the way! My family enjoys spending our summers at the lake and following the Bison football team in the fall. My favorite things about my job are the people I work with and working with the 4-H kids and parents.
