Suzanne Bartholomae is the newest addition to the family finance team at Iowa State University Extension and Outreach. The new ISU Extension specialist is part of the Department of Human Development and Family Studies at Iowa State, and will take over Pat Swanson’s responsibilities upon her retirement in December.

Beginning in September, ISU Extension and Outreach is offering Sharpen Your Financial Coaching Skills in several Iowa communities. The course helps people who coach Iowans on financial matters to perform at the top of their game. Sessions are set for Ames, Cedar Rapids, Clinton, Council Bluffs, Iowa City, Nevada and Ottumwa.
