Extreme Diver Interview – Charli Jo Epperly

This week is very near and dear to my heart. Anyone who has ever been in FFA knows what I’m talking about. All the kids are getting donned up in black pants/skirts, black shoes, white button down shirts and a blue corduroy jacket and heading to National FFA Convention. Are you saying, but Nicole, this is a scuba blog, not a FFA or agriculture blog. My response: Yes, I know this, but today’s Blog interviewee is an agriculture advisor. That means she’s loading a bus full of kids up and headed to National Convention herself, but she doesn’t have to wear the blue corduroy jacket. Today’s interviewee is Charli Jo Epperly. So now let’s turn the blog over to the Q&A session and learn a little more about Charli Jo.
