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

I like the feeling of community. I went to a very tiny high school and it was comforting when I came to UD to be a part of a smaller community within a large university.

What is your most memorable AG or UD experience?

I went to Ag Day during my senior year in high school. Getting to meet the students, see the campus, and pet the farm animals left a memorable impression on me.

What are your career goals?

I want to pursue a PhD in Conservation Biology so I can do research in the western United States.

What is an interesting or unusual fact about you?

I show dogs in American Kennel Club conformation events. I work for professional dog handlers and compete with my Portuguese Water Dog.

What is your favorite book, movie or song?

Favorite Movie: Lion
Favorite Song: Anything from the musical Hamilton
