Food Service Supervisor

Laurie Buffington

I was born in San Diego and have lived here all my life except for 18 months in Colorado.  I have two children (grown) and 1 grandson, 8 years old who also live in San Diego County.  I am Scots-Irish and extremely proud of my heritage.

I became interested working in the nutrition field when I went with my daughter on a school field trip, and noticed 3 young boys sharing a large bag of Doritos for lunch.  I decided that I wanted a career in which I could feed nutritious food to young children at an early age. I went back to school for two years and here I am, having worked at the Center for almost 10 years.

In my spare time I love to read and go places with my grandson.  I just celebrated by 31st wedding anniversary and live in the same house I grew up in.  My husband and I both like to garden and take care of the cactus in our front yard.
