Before joining UW Extension last month, Peavler most recently served as the 4-H coordinator for the University of Idaho’s Gooding County Extension office.

“Deb brings valuable experience to the Lincoln County 4-H Youth Development position in Kemmerer,” says Amanda Marney, senior associate director of UW Extension. “We are excited to watch the program grow as she settles into her new position working with youth, families, volunteers, and the community in Lincoln County.”

Peavler is a former schoolteacher with a passion for gardening and art. In addition to organizing 4-H events and managing volunteers, she has led both in-person and virtual learning opportunities for volunteers and youth in a variety of project areas.

Peavler earned her associate’s degree in early childhood education from Utah Valley University, a bachelor’s degree in art from Utah State University, and a master’s of education from Plymouth State University.

She participated in 4-H as a child and later found her way back to the program. “With my training and education, 4-H is a good fit,” she says. “As a professional, I consider extension my home.”

Her first priorities in Kemmerer, along with getting to know volunteers and 4-H members, include revitalizing the community barn and greenhouses.

Peavler can be contacted at or (307) 828-4092.
