Meet Our New Rural Health & Nutrition Agent!

Roxane Cummings, Rural Health & Nutrition Agent

Roxane Cummings recently joined the Rural Health and Nutrition team as the Rural Health Agent for Orangeburg and Bamberg Counties. She is lifelong resident of Cope, a small rural town in Orangeburg County.  After high school, she received her undergraduate degree in English from Southern Methodist College. She later returned to school for an MAT in English from SC State University and an MS in Youth Development Leadership from Clemson. With a background in education, she has taught various levels of English from middle school to college. Most recently, she served as 4-H Healthy Habits Program Coordinator, working with 4-H agents throughout South Carolina to promote healthy lifestyles.

Roxane and her husband Skip have been married for almost 40 years. Together, they enjoy relaxing and fishing on the Edisto River, attending Clemson sporting events (Go Tigers!), going to concerts, and most of all, spending time with their children and grandchildren.

Roxane is excited to begin working with the Clemson Extension Service Rural Health and Nutrition team to provide chronic disease prevention and self-management programs to participants in Orangeburg and Bamberg Counties.  Through virtual, in-person and hybrid programs that are either evidence-based or practice-tested, she seeks to empower individuals and equip them with skills and knowledge to make healthy decisions that lead to healthy lives.

All programs conducted by Rural Health and Nutrition team members are free to the public and focus on health across the lifespan.

Roxane can be reached at or 803-516-4208.
