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

The students and faculty are all so kind and helpful. Being a part of CANR means feeling like everyone around you wants you to succeed and be happy doing it.

What is your most memorable AG or UD experience?

I love Ag Day! Being a local, I've been coming to Ag Day for many many years, and there's always new and exciting things each time! I remember that last year there was an African porcupine there from a local zoo and it nuzzled my hand which was absolutely delightful. It's such a blast and it's great to share what we do with the community.

What are your career goals?

I hope to blend my two majors and manage populations of threatened or endangered plants and help them flourish.

What is an interesting or unusual fact about you?

I have tried every non-rotating flavor of UDairy ice cream and I aim to eventually try them all.

What is your favorite book, movie or song?

Book: The Piano Tuner by Daniel Mason
