Iowa State University Extension and Outreach Welcomes Kayln Cody as Family Finance Specialist


Iowa State University Extension and Outreach welcomes Kalyn Cody, Family Finance Specialist for Region 13, serving Polk, Dallas, Warren and Madison counties.
Before joining Iowa State Extension and Outreach as a Family Finance Specialist, Kalyn Cody worked as an elementary and middle school math teacher.  His teaching career began in a small desert town in California, followed by a stint in Phoenix, Arizona, before settling in Des Moines. After more than a decade as a classroom educator, Kalyn is excited to get out into the community and help his neighbors acquire the skills they need to reach their goals. 
Kalyn received his Master of Arts in Curriculum and Instruction from the University of Northern Iowa and a Bachelor of Arts in Elementary Education from Luther College in Decorah, Iowa.  He holds an Iowa Master Educator License with endorsements including K-6 elementary classroom, 5-8 middle school generalist, and pk-12 Talented and Gifted.
Kalyn lives in Des Moines with his wife, Tess. In his free time, Kalyn likes to kayak, read, and play sports and games (particularly soccer).  His body often tells him that it is time for a few less strenuous hobbies, but he owns plenty of ice packs.
We are very excited to welcome Kalyn as part of the Region 13 team!
