Suzette Barta has served as the Payne County Extension Educator for Community and Economic Development since October 2008. Her primary audiences are community/civic groups, small businesses, and professionals in the field of economic development. Payne County is only one of two in the state to have an educator working specifically in the field of community and economic development. Prior to working in the Payne County Extension office, Dr. Barta spent eight years on the OSU campus as an Assistant State Extension Specialist for Rural Development for the Oklahoma Cooperative Extension Service. Dr. Barta earned a Ph.D. in Economics from Oklahoma State University in 1998. She spent a year serving as an economics professor at the University of Central Oklahoma before joining the state Extension staff in 1999. Dr. Barta lives in Perkins with her husband, Joe (the Perkins Fire Chief). In her spare time she enjoys teaching Zumba and volunteering for the Perkins Chamber of Commerce. She is a member of five chambers of commerce in Payne County.
