What do you like about the UD College of Agriculture and Natural Resources?

I love how welcoming everybody in CANR is! Coming in as a freshman was a far less scary experience than I had anticipated, and I quickly felt right at home.

What is your most memorable AG or UD experience?

My most memorable CANR experience was getting the opportunity to "raise" a calf on the dairy farm as part of my ANFS111 class. It reminded me each week why I chose a pre-vet major in the first place!

What are your career goals?

I plan to go to Veterinary School and work with either domestic or exotic animals! I'd also love to travel to Africa to work with big cats.

What is an interesting or unusual fact about you?

I've gone to over 50 concerts in the past two years and I love music festivals!

What is your favorite book, movie or song?

I'm not a huge movie buff, but I've watched the entire Office series five times through.
